Wet, Sloppy, Disgusting Mess

Outside that is. It is GROSS out there. So gross in fact it makes me want to stay inside until it passes. The snow, the rain and the puddles. You know how it is when it snows and then the next day it rains like mad and turns all the snow into a big wet and slushy mess.

As a dog walker I don't really have much choice but to be out in this weather, it's my job. You do what you have to do. The rain doesn't bother me so much, that's what an umbrella is for. But what I hate is when I maneuver around puddles and think I am safe to step in what seems like only snow on the sidewalk but actually turns out to be a big, wet slushy puddle that covers your entire shoes. YAY!Add to that the fact I only had my running shoes on and they were sopping wet, and my feet were frozen. I was not a happy camper this afternoon. But now I am home and my shoes are in the dryer and my feet are once again warm.

And now I am going to retreat back to my couch and the warmth of a fuzzy fleece blanket.

I too am not a big fan of the mess but I like that the snow is starting to melt. Well at least it was till we got more last night. Hope it's not too cold in Boston.
