The First Big Snow
The new year brought a lot of surprises...this storm was one of them. An ongoing surprise, actually, as it changed in nature over the hours--from a soft wet blanketing snow to a colder blizzardy storm. At just over nine months old, Connery took the opportunity to prove he's really still a Big Goof. These pictures were taken in the "eye" of the storm. The rest of it is still blowing itself out around us.
The peaceful scene before Beagle arrival and before Storm Part II roared in...
Heeeeere comes ConneryBeagle!
The human threw a snowball for fetching. Connery's quite certain of it. It must be here somewhere...
This snowball will do!
(I take a moment to remind the gentle reader that Jean-Luc, due to brain injury shortly after birth, is a strange child. He eats things. He eats things that will kill him. He therefore wears this amazing contraption of a muzzle, which makes him look like Cujo but keeps him healthy.)

A Final Triumph Over Snowball
Singing into the much deeper snow two days later. Such an unusual echo...
