Finding Dirt Under the Snow

I just knew that there was dirt under the snow! I found it I found it! Not sure I can uncover all the dirt.....but if I keep digging it will help. I get some of the wonderful earthy smelling dirt uncovered and then I look around at all the snow and ice everywhere and begin to think this is a job to big for me. Ronan was of no help I don't think he understood the concept of finding dirt.

2011 Snow Storm

I have cabin fever! The 2011 snow storm turned out to be more of an ice storm and the humans keep me locked up inside, it feels like it will be FOREVER! I have got to get out-----when oh when will the sun come back? I really think someone stole the sun and if they would just let me out of this house for awhile I could probably sniff the suns trail and get it back!

I searched behind this stack of firewood for a clue, but not even a small scent of the sun radiated from the aged wood. All I could smell was dirt and nasty little beetles hiding in the crevices.

So then I decided to check under these rocks. Nope, all I could smell there were the scents of chipmunks that had hidden their winter stock of hickory nuts deep between the rocks.

Then I began my search throughout the cold icy landscape of the woods. Just as I began really searching for the sun what happens? You will never guess! Yep your right the humans call my name demanding I come back in the house.

How is a bloodhound ever supposed to find the sun if the humans don't allow me to search. I have a nose but I am not a miracle worker it will take a little time to find the sun.

I heard word that a groundhog had found the sun! Now that is just not right! What human believes that a groundhog can tell them when the sun will be back? I don't trust any of those nasty rodents. So depressing..............I even think they called him Phil! Why would you name a rodent!
