Snow Snow Snow

We are only in the beginning of January and already have enough snow to last until next January. The sun is shining today, but don’t let that fool you. It waits until we go to bed and then sneaks up on us. I like watching it fall out of the sky, and than it can go away. It’s already on the ground by the time I get up. We can’t even enjoy watching it snow. I guess it isn’t so bad here, Spokane is getting most of it. I’m glad I don’t live there. What I hate the most is the slipping and sliding when I go to the mailbox. I put my boots on and tramp through foot deep snow to avoid the skating ring, commonly known as the driveway. One day I drove my car to the mailbox. I must have looked like a goofball. I felt like one so I haven’t done it since, but I tell everyone in the world. How smart is that. That wasn’t a real question so you do not need to answer it.
I’m just rambling here, hence the name of my blog.

Maybe we should invest in ice skates, no wait then we would all have broken ankles.

You have to have a snow machine to get down our road...which, by the way, is in town, NOT in the boonies!

Those of us who live on the West side of the state get flapped by snow. We are not set up for it and only those residents who are from the East manage well in it. Fortunately Pierce Co. did a much better job than King Co. in dealing with the snow. Poor Spokane can't seem to catch a break.

I feel so bad for the places that normally don't get snow but this year it is a snow bonanza and I feel sorry for me who usually gets some snow but this year Nada!

Our snow here in Ft. Vancouver has melted and pooled. Now we're being pelted with rain, lots and lots of rain, and wind. Anyone have an ark I can borrow?

You're a braver person than I. After 13 years living in Idaho I hightailed it back to Southern California. The year I left was the Winter that the snow fell sideways. There was so much wind it couldn't fall down. I promise never again to complain about rain or 50 degree mornings.
