Much to Scott’s delight, the snow is beginning to melt here. Everything is turning from beautiful, clean, frozen, and snow-covered to dirty, ugly, muck and mud.

Mud, Mud, Mud


Dirt roads are closed or have restrictions.

Streams are flowing


Some streams are opening up.

The mighty Menominee River


Muddy dog

What this means, for me however, are lots of muddy dogs.



Rue doesn’t mind the mud.

The dogs don’t mind the mud at all, of course.

It is a lot more work keeping the dogs and house clean, but there isn’t much we can do about it.

I’ll just be grateful it isn’t worse!
