  2. That is cold!

  3. These are great! I can feel the cold!

  4. Aw what a sweet photo of frosted Sugar. 🙂
    Snowy memories, I had almost forgotten them. I don’t blame you for moving to Florida.
    Great photos.
    I hope you have a pleasant weekend.

  5. Brrr! Your pictures make me shiver. 🙂

  6. Sweet Sugar! I want that pooch! Really cute.

  7. Colleen! You’ve got two great pics here to showcase “cold”…it’s funny because I relate to you living in warm and balmy Florida so seeing cold, snow photos on your blog is something new for me :-))
    Sugar is adorable with those flakes of snow…seems like “sugar” on Sugar!
    And Ron looks dapper in the snow by the river…Great!
    Hope all is well with you!
    Sending you warm wishes!

    • Thanks, Lia. I actually grew up in Wisconsin. We lived in Montana for about 17 years. Believe me, we are no strangers to the cold. As my husband got older (he is 10 years older than me) it just too cold for him. We decided to move back to Florida. We were stationed close to here years ago. No more cold for me either. I actually feel better in the heat and humidity… even though I complain about it! LOL! <3 Have a great weekend!

      • Oh that’s so interesting about your hometown and travels to various states… I see you as a Floridian in my mind but it’s interesting to know you are from Wisconsin and spent many years in Montana!
        I second the idea of feeling better in the NH end heat, although I tend to complain too once the real heat of the summer sets in!

  8. We have a common thread. I lived in Madison, Wisconsin for more almost thirty years. Before retiring to Florid five years ago, we lived in Milwaukee.

    • I love common threads. I grew up there. At 18, I left to join the Air Force. I only have gone back a handful of times in the past. My first base was in Georgia and then Florida. We always said when we retired we would come back and we did. I think the heat and humidity here is comparable to Milwaukee. LOL!

  9. We’re in that same heat wave here, Colleen, so thanks for the snow pics. A reminder ! ☺ Van

  10. Sugar looks quite frigid in that photo!

  11. Sugar looks so Sweet, and where is Spice? Tell Ron he does as well. 🙂

    Refreshing photos for the challenge, Colleen.

    • Hi, Hugh. Something different from my archives. I could never get Spice to stay still long enough to photograph her. She is still a ball of fire. Sugar is more laid back and easy going. I must say, I really do not miss the cold or the snow although it is quite hot and humid today with thunderstorms. <3

      • Toby is sometimes like that and moves just at the wrong moment. Sugar looks so beautiful in that photo. Looks like she has been sprinkled with flour.

        I’m off to London for 4 days today, so won’t be around. But I’ll take plenty of pictures and post them once I get back.

        See you next week 🙂

  12. I don’t fancy cold right at the moment, but excellent images. Love sugar…

    • The images of cold are welcome here in Florida right now. The humidity is high, and the heat is on. What fun to think about the cold for a bit. Sugar loved playing in the snow. Spice did too, but she was always on the move. Hard to capture a shot!
