Ice Ice Baby!!!

Good morning! This is Salinger T. Pug, your loyal reporter coming to you LIVE from Pendleton, Indiana where we are in the midst of an ICE STORM!

As you can see here, our front yard looks like a triple dipped Krispy Kreme doughnut!

The news people have been foaming at the mouth for a few days with 24/7 coverage about the ICE headed our way!

And there's MORE on the way! Oy gevalt!

Mom went out to the grocery store yesterday to get a few things so we wouldn't have to go out (and because that's what old Hoosier woman do!) and THIS was the scene at Kroger....

Bread aisle....totally picked over!

Here is the line for checkout lane 1 (which was the SHORTEST lane...trust us!)

Every lane was open and all of the employees were doing their best and they were even checking people out at the service counter and florist counter! It was insane! Mom was in line for about 35 minutes and made friends with all the people around her.

Now...I also must report the UPSIDE to crappy weather like this....

Couch snuggling with Daddy!



Snuggling with Holden!

But the coolest thing about an ice storm is that I walk on TOP of it when I go outside to pee!

No "bulldozer" action here! I'm a 4 legged Zamboni!!!!

We hope all of our friends are safe and warm and making the best of the weather! We Midwesterners are tough and some of us secretly look forward to weather like this so we can have "snuggle days" home with our families!

Happy Icy Tuesday everyone!!! Be careful out there!

S. Pug...OUT!

Buddy this is terribles. The only good thing is the snuggling and the card making. Oh I have a bulldozer costume if you wants to borrow its. Wow you guys should really really move out heres. Stay warm my friend stay warm!


Puglette said...

Pearl and Daisy said...

You look pretty slick (heehee) on that ice, Sal. Does this mean we can call you Samboni now?

We're glad you're having a good day. Mommy is kind of a scaredy pants about ice storms. She was living in Montreal way before us when they lost power for days. She and Daddy had to give live at the university where Daddy was working! It wasn't very much fun.

Stay warm!
Pug love from,
Pearl & Daisy

We know all bouts ice storms...we got one in Jan 09 and were stuck in Doggy Nanny's house for 11 days without power and everything was iced over.

Vito and Gina said...

We feel your pain Sal! Here in St. Louis we are getting all ice & sleet too but they say the snow will be here any minute! I don't mind the ice and sleet so much, I just run right out there in it and do my business! I don't feel the same way about snow!!

Sandy said...

That's what I'd call an Ice Holiday...everyone buying food to fix and laying around and watching TV on the days off. Yea!

Tweedles -- that's me said...

your one tuff little zambini if you ask me. I have been watching your storm and have been so worried about your part of the world.
I am glad your mommy got snacks..and stuff..
be careful out there, as you cover the story.
