A Gruesome Discovery

We went away this past weekend and while we were gone, most of the snow melted. While out in the yard, I made a gruesome discovery. The following pictures are not for the squeamish. I found the remains of not one, but two snowmen. Oh, it was awful. I shuddered at the sight. It almost made me sick at my stomach. Remember, only look at the following pictures at your own risk.

Here is what is left of the large snowman. Pitiful isn't it? At least he was not torn apart by dogs like past snowman have been.


Here is all that is left of the little guy. One stick and his hat. What a sad, sad sight. Just like in past winters, the size of the snowman doesn't prevent it's death.
They did their job when they were here. They were very valiant snowmen and we bid them farewell!!!

I had to go out on Monday to take some things to the post office. It was weird how the snow was melted in some places and not in others. This is my neighbor yard belongs to my neighbor who lives 2 doors down. They have lots of trees, but with no leaves, you wouldn't think it would make that much difference.

Here is a view coming back down the street toward home. You can see the above yard on the right side of this picture.

Here is the view to our barn and back pastures.

Farewell fair snowmen!

That was a great post! :)
Although, I have do admit, knowing your fearless dogs, I was afraid to look after I read the title!

But just like Frosty "they'll be back next year" (or maybe sooner)

It is so weird how we have no snow but down the road does. Even after the 50mph winds they still have snow. What a mess those winds were. I am so ready for spring. In only 3 weeks we turn our clocks ahead. That will be wonderful
