Nearly two weeks after the blizzard, my street looks like this:
I heard last week on the news that firefighters were digging out hydrants in case of emergency. Guess they haven't made it to my block yet!
Some of the snow has melted since the weather was a bit warmer this weekend, leaving behind huge puddles of ice water. It's difficult to find a place to cross the street, especially for a low to the ground pup like Maisie. You may not be able to tell from this pic, but the water at the end of the driveway in front of my house is ankle-deep.
Here's what the parking lot at my office looked like this morning:
Plus it helps to keep her in the back (as opposed to climbing into the passenger seat while I'm driving).
When it gets dirty, I just throw it in the washing machine and air dry it. The material is very sturdy, but Maisie still was able to chew through one of the velcro fasteners at some point. I put a new piece of adhesive velcro on it and although it's not perfect, it works well enough...and had the bonus effect of making me feel oh-so-crafty!
