Weather Report from Washington! =)

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 !

ha ha!

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…

*sigh*   =)

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?  =)

    It’s still lovely…around 70. I just know we’ll have another touch of cold before Spring, and I’m soooo dreading it. I’m already getting tan! 🙂

    My first thought when I saw the first picture was, “NO WAY!”, then I continued to scroll, and low and behold..snow. I guess we can’t be all that shocked…it still is February. We are suppose to get some tonight too. 🙁 I am done!

    thanks for the pics of the snow. i feel a little less jealous now. a little. it’s still not 17 inches. but it’s not sunshine and green grass. so i’m not quite so jealous. lol.

    the heart in the driveway has me a little jealous,though. ha ha…no, really your guy was very sweet. i’m glad you get those little love notes.

    the flower in the snow is a neat pic. what a crazy winter, hey?

    I don’t think you even need me to answer that question…I write about our cold, snowy winter way too often I’m sure.
