    Severe weather

    More from mab91c

    Yeah...More Snow!

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     mab91c and his wife, Terri, wanted to get a jumpstart on shoveling the 3-4 inches of snow that have accumulated in Siloam Springs, Arkansas, before any more of the predicted snow fall hits the area. "It's easier to shovel 3-4 inches of snow twice [than] 8 inches all at once," he said.

    Mackenzie, their 11-year-old Great Dane, was out enjoying the snow while they shoveled. "While [she's] slowing down a bit...she still manages to have some fun out there," he said.
    - Verybecoming, CNN iReport producer

    OK, it's not a big deal, people, snow happens, just like the other "S" word. I figured I'd get a jump on shoveling since, to me, it's easier to shovel 3-4 inches of snow twice then 8 inches all at once.

     

    My lovely wife documented this along with our Great Dane Mackenzie. She's 11 years old now (that's old for you non Dane lovers) and while slowing down a bit (aren't we all...yes by a show of hands) she still manages to have some fun out there.

    You all be safe and warm out there, if you are getting sever weather, make sure you have the proper food groups...you know, beer & wine (wife says you have to have food too but pffft!)

     

    Oh...Go Broncos! (No, I don't have a dog in this fight, but since our "adopted daughter" in San Antonio is a Broncos fan, we'll support her today!)
