mbc1963 Posted January 15, 2009 Report Share Posted January 15, 2009 We got 6" of snow on Sunday. Then forecast bitter cold. I ordered some "Musher's Secret" on Monday (maybe Tuesday) and it came in the mail today. Slapped it on my dog's feet, then headed to the local reservoir to see if he could get a few minutes' exercise. Well, between the storm and today, the city had, in its rare serendipitous wisdom, sent some kind of groomer out onto the snow trail, so instead of huffing through snow underlaid by ice, twisting my ankles and knees, I got to walk on a wide path of packed powder with a scuffed surface. The Musher's Secret worked, and my poor dog with limpy paws was running like a demon, happy to be stretching his legs after a week of difficult walking. And best of all, the weather forecasters, who were making it sound like I'd freeze stepping outside my door, had scared everyone away. I had the hundreds of acres near the lake to myself, so I didn't have to leash my dog at all. It was hardly terrible cold: 10ish degrees with no wind - easily managed with a good jacket and mittens. We got in a good 75 minute walk in pristine snow, with the gorgeous winter sunset and that light that only comes this time of year. ::Sigh:: So content.
