Taking Bets - Did I Ask for It or What?

Forty inches in Four Days expected in the mountains.   MANY of you said "Be Careful What You Wish For!"

Winter Storm Warning now in effect.  I am taking bets.  The Closest in guessing how much snow we actually will get as measured by inches at the local Ski Resort will get a New Nylabone from me, the SCRAPSTER!  Will the meteorologists be right or wrong?  Apparently, our weather is almost impossible to predict....Many of our storms go south and JUST miss us completely.  (Let's hope not though, because we need this for sure!)

Those weather people never seem to get the forecast right.  Where is my furiend Schmitty The Weather Dog when you need an experienced weather reader?

In preparation for the Big Storm, I  am doing the following things....

Trying out my new winter parka (again) just because I look pretty good in it and it's very warm!

This morning, I took a survey of the back yard, checking out all the places and smells I won't get to after all that deep snow arrives!  

                                                             Getting Shovel Ready....

See the snow flakes starting?
                                Well, usually I just Supervise that shoveling from IN Here

                                                            sometimes BARKING orders!

                        And Now I am Hunkering down for the Four Days of Waiting

Be sure and leave your prediction in the comments section below.  Winner will be announced Saturday!

And maybe, just maybe....if you are better at forecasting than the weather people here,
then you can become the SnowStormin Predictor Dog!


  1. OK I'll guess 21 inches. :)

    Have fun.

  2. Well, I'll try 19 inches seeing as how I've never seen snow before but 19 sounds like a nice number, right? Just don't go out and get buried in it, ok?

  3. OK I will go with 18.5 inches.

  4. I am going with 27 inches!

    Your pal, Pip

  5. What a great jacket

    Stop on by for a visit

  6. My guess is six inches. Ruff! I want to be the weather dog! Good idea in checking out those smells before the snow comes. You better check out my page, sis. Ya got an award.

  7. Hey Scrappy,

    I'm gonna guess 17 inches, not that I know the first thing about Snow Dude!! I just couldn't resist the chance to get a Nylabone!! :)

    Glad you've got your jacket ready, stay warm!!

    Your pal Snoopy :)

  8. We're not going to guess but we hope you get a ton of fun snow to play in :)Jess

  9. Hi Scrappy, You are adorable in your parka! M guess is 5.4 inches of the white stuff :) Emma says you're smart to survey the backyard - like her, you might not get out there again for a while... it's -27 C right now here in Edmonton!

  10. That parka sure does look warm but not as warm and cozy as that amazing bed. I'd be terrible at guessing on this because we don't get snow here in the good ol' South, and sometimes I think that's a good thing BOL. :)

  11. Be prepared. Be very prepared. Scrappy you're so cute! Can I give you a pinch?

    Mine would be 13 inches because it's my lucky number. Calculations and scientific assumptions aside.

    Huggies and Cheese,


  12. Let's see - I lived in Great Falls - we'd get a lot of snow but didn't last long; if you live near the ski area, you wil get about 15" - my guess. Have a great time but be careful out there!

  13. Woof! Woof! Great PARKA. Looks good on you ... LOVE the color. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  14. You sure look like you are ready for any ammount of snow! I say 29 1/2 inches! Have fun in it! Lovies, Miss Mindy

  15. I am going to say 16 inches. If you do get a lot will you PLEASE send some to us in Ontario. It is pouring rain here again and our snow is just about gone!! By the way Scrappy, I do love your parka!

  16. That is a mighty stylish parka you have there! We guess 7.25" inches!


  17. I love your winter wear!

    I've included you in my Liebster Award list! Pop over to my blog to check out the details! <3

  18. We will guess 15 inches. We just love your parka Scrappy! It is soooo cute!! Hope you stay safe in all of that white stuff! The weather guys were wrong here...maybe you will get lucky too! xoox Chloe and LadyBug

  19. We're going to guess 11 inches.

    And we love your jacket - super stylish!
