It rained hard and long last night. And this morning the snow is gone. well, most of it anyway. There are still snowbanks and patches of snow and ice on the ground here and there, but for the most part, it’s all gone. And with it, all the ice that was preventing us from exercising.

I just got in from taking the dogs for a good run. Of course they are absolutely filthy right now, but they are tired and happy, as border collies should be! The temperature is supposed to drop dramatically this afternoon (I can already feel it getting close to freezing), so the rain did its job just in time. We’re supposed to get snow this evening, but snow I can deal with.

It’s so nice to get down to work with my dogs sleep from exhaustion instead of from boredom!
