Western Washington that is…
For those of you who commented on Sunday
that you were jealous of this:
My man mowing the lawn 6 days ago
because the sun was manipulating our lawn into growing.
Apparently grass grows in 40-50 degree weather… =)
Be Jealous NO MORE
yesterday we woke to this in Washington State
Every 20 minutes the snow would fall
and then the sun would peek out and melt it some
and then the snow would fall again
and then the sun would peek out and melt it some more
and then more snow would fall…
you get the idea!
When I took the dog out to take care of business
I found this sweet little 4 inch flower
Yeah… it is buried under snow today!
Today we woke to 4 more inches than yesterday
that was at 7:30 this morning
when they finally canceled school
roads are slick in Washington when it snows…
we really aren’t babies over here…
Snow on the coast is Wet and slippery!
all that snow/sun yesterday left ice under the wet snow
it is 10 am now and we are looking at
6 plus inches of Snow
(and counting… snow has now stopped fallin!)
Yep… from 6 plus inches of grass
to 6 plus inches of snow =)
I am NOT complaining…
just showing you all
that you forgot to read the part
under the lawn mower picture in Sunday’s blog post …where I said
” MARK MY WORDS… It WILL snow again!! “ =)
and sure enough it snowed!!
In less than a week !
speaking of my sweet man
look what he left me in the driveway this morning
on his way to work
or maybe he left it for the kids…
I bet he left it for the kids…
I had to use some funky editing to get it to show up…
the snow had covered it by the time I found it =)
the humorous thing about all this snow?
in less than 6 days
rain or shine, snow or sleet…
THIS will consume our lives again
apparently they only cancel outdoor soccer for lightening!!??
In case all you soccer savvy folks were wondering
don’t worry… that snowy soccer ball is Merlin’s!
Abby’s soccer ball is safe and dry in the garage! =)
yikes… soccer in the snow? really? they are only 5th graders!
honestly snow usually disappears in less than 2 days around these parts!
Sometimes we are lucky enough to keep it a week.
(did I say lucky… what is wrong with me?)
Occasionally it stays for 2 weeks… but that is rare!!
Alright… I am done… it is time to get out of my PJ’s
and be a good mom and take my littles out in the COLD…brrrr….
what is wrong with children??
why do they want to go outside on days like this?!!
ha ha ha … I kid.
maybe when we come in..
we’ll have the warm brownies I just pulled out of the oven!
I might even have to make a pot roast for dinner…
and creamy mashed potatoes!!
because the best thing about Snow Days…
is Winter comfort food… right? =)
