18 Pets Who Totally Love Snow Storms

If you’ve been wondering where winter has been, wonder no more as many parts of the U.S braced themselves for snow storm Hercules. I live in Canada and we’ve gotten our fair share of snow so far and while we’re not expecting much precipitation to drop in the next couple of dyas, we do have the cold weather (and by cold I mean -16C), so cold weather doesn’t always faze us here.

Snow storm Hercules was estimated to drop large amounts of snow, which are usually accompanied by power outages, delayed and cancelled flights, and closed highways. It’s important to make sure you’re all staying safe, warm, and have all the supplies you need just in case you’re without power for any amount of time.

I personally don’t like snow storms. I do what I can to avoid going out and I am so not a winter sport type of person. (No skiing for me.) That’s a true statement for many others as well, but if you’re anything like these pets? You are anticipating a fun time this weekend thanks to all that snow that you’ll be able to play in.

    Well, I don't think I've ever seen an otter in real life, let alone two otters who are just hanging out in the snow. They seem happy enough though, right?
