Cobalt: Heavy Snow

Last weekend had a heavy snowfall here in Toronto. Cobalt adores snow, so we were looking forward to taking her out to High Park -- but the snowfall was so heavy, we didn't think we'd be able to drive that far easily.

So we figured we'd take her to Riverdale Park. No luck! Cabbagetown hadn't been plowed at all, we couldn't get in.

Brickworks? Nope -- the parking lot was pristine with its 20cm of snow.

Eventually, we ended up back home, parking in front of the house instead of in the garage, because we weren't sure if we'd be able to get back down the lane (we barely got out!).

So, it was Allan Gardens by default.

They're building a fenced-in off-leash in Allan Gardens at the moment, but it's not ready yet. So we had to make do with the rest of the park.

Chase in the Snow

The only thing better than chase games is chase games in the snow.



Catching snowflakes.


You know, I'm starting to get a little soaked here...

It's Deep!

And it's starting to get a little hard to move around...

And my fur's all frosty...

Ok, I think I'm ready to go in!

(Actually, she could probably have gone for another hour or two -- but we were freezing!)
