One look at this little fella and my heart just melts. I could never get tired of that precious face greeting me at day’s end. He’s sweeter than I could ever hope for. He’s extremely well behaved, and kind even to the cats (now that they’ve figured out his bark has zero bite). I’m just smitten as can be, and lucky beyond belief.

Today I heard two meteorological terms I don’t recall hearing before. A Saskatchewan Screamer is like an Alberta Clipper, but out of Saskatchewan obviously, and Graupel is the kind of snow that was described by local meteorologist Bill Meck as ‘more like Dippin’ Dots than snow flakes.’ That’s the snow I saw at 7:30 this morning. It was pretty awesome to watch, though I don’t recommend driving in it. The Saskatchewan Screamer will be here tomorrow. It’s a three-day weekend, one of my favorite things, so I say bring on the screaming graupel.
