It seems the winter will never end here in Northeastern Minnesota. We had experienced a little bit of spring earlier this month and the temperature was so nice that Savage and I did quite a bit of outdoor activities and walking, even though it involved both of us wading through mud. The latest snowstorm brought many inches of snow and high winds, making it really miserable to get outside and get some much-needed exercise and fresh air, though. 
Lately Randy, Savvy, and I have been spending most of our time inside (or shoveling snow, as in the photo above) and all of us are getting cabin fever. This morning our walk took us through snowdrifts half my height and blowing snow, still. Over the winter Savage has put on a little more weight and I look forward to both of us being able to enjoy our walks in the spring sunshine. Right now he is contentedly camped out on the couch again and it looks like we'll be snowed in the rest of the day.
