Let it snow!

December 2, 2007

Oh yeah.  That’s right.  I said SNOW!

I love snow – have ever since I was a little kid.  And it wasn’t because I didn’t want to go to school (I liked school); but I love being out in the snow.

Now that I’m grown up it’s still magical.  Sure I need to shovel the driveway.  Sure it’s a pain in the arse to put on chains.  Sure there are lots of idiots out there who don’t know how to act in the snow.  But it’s still fun!

It started snowing about 2p yesterday afternoon while we were in North Bend doing some shopping.  Kaitlyn loved seeing the snowing coming down.  As an added bonus we got to see the “Santa Train” on the move as we were driving home in the blowing snow.  Now if that doesn’t say “Happy Holidays” I don’t know what does!

Unfortunately Kaitlyn was up through the afternoon so she didn’t go down for her nap until about 3:45p.  We woke her up about 7p so we could go outside in the snow for a bit.  It was still snowing and Kaitlyn loved walking around in the falling snow (there was about 3-4 inches on the ground) and looking at all the Christmas lights.  It was blowing hard though, so it was pretty cold.  We didn’t stay out for long.

Now through all this I kept looking at the weather reports, etc. (yes, I admit I’m a weather geek) because I am drumming this weekend at church.  So I was trying to decide whether to drive to Bellevue Saturday night and crash on someone’s couch, or sleep in my own bed and slog it in the morning.  I finally decided on the latter.

This morning at 4:30a I woke up and peeked out the window … there’s 10-12 inches of snow on the ground – much higher in drifts and were our city’s plow drivers decide to leave their deposits.  Why can’t these guys clear out the entrances to the alleys?!?  After a few minutes of maneuvering to get out of our driveway I had to blow through a 2+ foot snow bank at the end of our alley.  GRR.

Anyway, I made it in just fine.  And it’s still snowing up there.  LOVELY!  Here’s the view from our front room this morning.

I wonder how much more snow will fall today before it changes to rain.  Then comes flooding over the next few days with a couple more storms coming in from the Pacific.  Oh – and don’t forget the expected wind storm.  Tis the season!

    How come when we talked last night it was a 3 foot snow bank you had to “blow through” and in your blog it is a 2 foot snow bank. Something’s fishy here!!! 🙂
