My Mum & Pops tell me it’s winter, but where the heck is the snow???

I can’t believe it’s mid-January in Michigan because we really haven’t had much snow so far this year.  I personally really enjoy a good snow storm because it gives me a chance to play outside with lots of the fun, fluffy white stuff.  Check out this picture of me last year as I sported one of my new coats:

My parents like the snow too.  Sometimes we go on hikes on the trails in the park near our house.  My Pops creates snow trails with our snow blower in the back yard so I can run around and chase my toys.  Last winter the snow was so deep that when I ran through the tunnels, all you saw was my tail sticking up like a radio antenna.

We also like to go to the places where my parents snow ski.  They ski during the day and we take lots of great walks and eat great food.  I like ski trips.  Here I am modeling my new boots – I’m ready to go !!
So, I’d like to know where the snow is anyway!  According to the Farmer’s Almanac, the winter of 2011–12, we should be expecting “clime and punishment,” a season of unusually cold and stormy weather. For some parts of the country, that means a frigid climate; while for others, it will mean lots of rain and snow.  The upcoming winter looks to be cold to very cold for the Northern Plains, parts of the Northern Rockies, and the western Great Lakes.

I think it’s all a bunch of hooey.
