Default It's Snowing!

I live in North Central Washington about 20 min south of the Canadian border. We are finally getting snow! Kind of-the wind has been blowing steady for the past 6 days between 20 and 25 mph.Snow finally started to fall, sidways, this morning. Weather man started out saying we would get from 1-2 Feet from this storm, changed to 2-5 inches last night. the temp here at 1;45 is 5 degrees. I understand those on the west side of the Cascades are getting a lot of snow, I was told Tacoma, who seldom get's snow, has about a foot. Well the skiers will be happy.We don't usually get a lot of snow like some of you but we really need it, If we don't get enough it will be a very dry summer, We will be looking at Forest fires, and some well's may go dry. I would post a picture but for some reason no mater what I do I can't get them to post. I'm sure it's operator error. LOL I just wish the wind would quit!!

Stay inside and keep warm! My part of Kansas hasn't seen any snow yet for this year and it is really rare. We need the moisture as well so we are truly praying for snow.

I used to enjoy sewing or crocheting when it was snowing all snuggled up in the house it was so nice however when you have to go out to work and shovel a ton of snow/ice and drive on the black ice it's so much nicer here in Fl. especially at this time of yr. I really don't miss the snow. It gets cold here for a few days which we love because it's so far in between. Enjoy watching the snow and stay inside safe and warm. Happy Quilting. Sue

Grammie BJ -- That was my thought when it started to snow last Friday -- goodie -- But it has snowed every day since and now there is over 16 inches on the ground. No one here in Olympia WA plows or shovels -- only the interstate and a couple major roads. They expect it to melt I guess.

What a mess -- snow that deep and making slush and ruts -- they just close streets when no one can get up the hills.

They tease me that I brought the snow from Maine -- the fields at the cottage (in Maine) are clear and brown

Default Snow Bound

I live in NW Washington -- we have been snowbound since Monday. Our furnace died Monday afternoon, but fortunately were able to get a repairman out before it got dark. We have had about 14 inches of snow since then -- and it is still snowing (about 3 inches today). We have been advised that the snow may change to the ice storm that is hitting to the south -- that would be a real mess.

So far we have power -- hopefully that continues as it is 22 degrees.

I am going to try to attach a picture taken after our big dump Tuesday. Hope this works.
