Oh the weather outside it frightful!


O.k. Here's the thing: I'm not a snow bunny, never have been. I like my weather warm and near something sandy with crashing waves. So every third or so year when we get snow, I get, kind of ho hum about it.

That said, it does look very pretty. It started out about 9:00a.m. and then just kept coming. Large wet quarter sized flakes that didn't stick too much at first, but after an hour or so it got pretty thick.

The town just about five miles south of us got 18 inches by 4:00. By 5:00 we had 6 inches, although it just wouldn't show up in the photos. It has continued to snow since then, but frankly, I stopped checking the depth at that last 6 inches. Oy.




Oh, and on a side note... Thor made it through and down the freeway just before it closed. He had to stay at his parents house because once he went through they closed it for good. wah!

I love the ruler! I was wondering how much it had snowed. The kids loved the day. Bummer that Thor was stuck down the hill. Travis is out working in this right now - Yuck.

I love it that all of my family is in snow! It makes me feel closer to you all somehow!

OY! But thanks to both of you! Final on the ruler was 7 inches, which to Pea, I suppose, isn't much. : )
