Welcome to Cranky Puppy Farm!

This blog belongs to two Gen X-er's smackdab in downtown Kansas City where we've been renovating and decorating two old Victorians built in the 1890's. Our life is filled with 3 demanding Pomeranians (1 of them cranky, of course), honking cars, noisy neighbors and the hustle and bustle of city life but we dream of the day when we can move to our 40-acre farm and hear nothing but the wind and the cows next door. Until then, we're chronicling our triumphs and mishaps here as we try to garden and preserve on 2 city lots, raise chickens, and learn all those things we should have learned from our grandparents. Welcome to our world - we hope you'll stay awhile!

Finally, A Snow Day

Monday, February 13, 2012

The front door of the coop as I trundled out to check on the girls this morning.

I had almost forgotten what snow was, with all these 50 and 60 degree days we've had this winter. 

We knew it was going to snow last night, not because Joe from Fox 4 had told us it would, but because the wind was completely dead and the air was crisp.  I don't know how to explain it, but I suspect you know what I'm talking about.  There's a certain crisp, cleanness to the air right before it snows.

I awoke this morning a little after 3 a.m. and begrudgingly fell out of bed to find the world blanketed in beautiful, quiet whiteness. Snow washes away all the dirt and grime of a dingy city and makes it look new again, even if only for a fleeting couple of hours.  It's a little big of magic in an otherwise mundane life.  Like the snowflakes hitting my face as I took the picture above.

To me, it's all a reminder to slow down, catch my breath, sit a spell...
