Fiat nix!

We're enjoying the first substantial snowfall of the season here at Menagerie central-- nearly 6 inches of fluffy snow, which, combined with our newly put up Xmas lights, makes for a nice picture.


The dogs' reactions to the snow varied a good bit. Moose has always been a fan of the white stuff and can't wait to romp around in it.


He has also always maintained that there are more good smells to be had when there's fresh snow on the ground.


Raz and Lucy, however, were less than impressed with Mother Nature's work...

After an astonished few steps in the cold snow, Raz retreated to the back steps and refused to budge. Lucy was coaxed into venturing a bit further, but she also went back as soon as she could...

So, we'll have a contest at the Menagerie-- who can guess what this title means? One hint: it is in fact Latin...

Let it snow? Nothing can be done about the snow? Let nothing be done? I don't know. (we did look up Fiat since who knows what that might mean, aside from a European car...)

One guess at a time, please...

It does in fact mean (more or less) "let it snow." It's similar to "fiat lux" (let there be light), which is why I chose that particular formulation, nerd that I am.
