    It Snowed

    We've been getting quite a bit of snow in WA this season. It just snowed again during the night. Usually by the time I get up the sun has melted the snow on the branches, but today it was still there. I went outside and got some pictures to share. Enjoy

    Fresh snow is so pretty - but that probably means it's headed my way....

    Will trade husband for Disneyland and DCA Pins!

    Melon - thanks for posting these! Now if my family wants to know what it looks like, I'll just send them to this page!! I love the last picture -the ends of the trees look like they have ornaments on them!

    I love how pretty fresh snow looks. And now, 90 minutes after you put those pictures up, I bet it looks a lot different with the warmer air hitting and everything getting all drippy? Tink is home from school AGAIN today and even she is getting bored from it!!
    I love my awesome crazy wonderful friends!!

    Re: It Snowed

    I took some at 6:30ish this morning in Portland, an hour after it started, then again a few hours later while the girls were playing:







    They're inside warming up and playing with their Playstation while their snow stuff is in the dryer.

    It's a balmy 26 degrees. I'm watching the news. They don't think it'll melt tomorrow, although it may get into the mid-30's.

    My husband left the house very early for work today and before he got halfway there, several highways were shut down, I begged him to come home, but he kept on....and then tried to come home...and slid off the road. He was hit by a car, then he slid into a bus. All ended up getting pushed into a shallow ditch, because none of the cars/buses/trucks could get traction on the hill they were on.

    Ironically, he could not then catch a bus to a transit center to get home for another hour or more. He's still an hour from home....and he's only 6 miles away right now.

    Beautiful pics!!!!! We had some flurries today and cold. I still wish we had real snow, though. Can we trade places for awhile? So I can remember what snow is like?

    Here's a look down our street:



    And up:






    There's a city bus stuck on the main road under our house, they just can't make it up the incline, but not for lack of trying. The driver's been gunning it over and over again. And it just started snowing hard again.

    Here are a couple more.

    I love snowy trees! Beautiful!!

    That bus is still stuck. It's been almost an hour of it trying to move and it just can't...it's hard to believe!! It has chains on it, too.

    The temp is up to 28 now. And it's no longer snowing. They said on the news, it should be done snowing, except for a few flurries.

    But if the roads aren't any better by tomorrow (and how could they? We're not getting above freezing), there's no way there's going to be school. The kids are stoked!!

    My husband is waiting for a bus. It was supposed to be there more than 30 minutes ago. Bah. He says the one he's supposed to be on, is probably the one stuck down at the bottom of our road. Glad he has a sense of humor. It's been three hours since he left work and he's not home yet.
