I am not looking forward to those cold temps next week. I have to get out and have the knee checked and and I am not interested in trying to wheel my walker on ice parking lots. Keeping the fingers crossed. Off to a warm bed and hopefully a good book.

Snow and Cold!

It's snowing out, but not as hard as in other places, like Seattle. It might be gone in the morning unless it freezes and can't melt. This coming week is going to be bloody cold and we don't have heat in the house, just room heaters. We have a fireplace and tons of wood but it doesn't really warm the house up much.

The worst thing today and everyday at the moment......Christmas shopping with a 3 year old who MUST touch everything, hides from Mummy, etc....and a 1 year old (today!...Happy Birthday darling Joel) who is at least strapped in the stroller, but is getting his first molar teeth and is as fed up with shopping as I am!

My daughter is flying out of Seattle Thursday and has warned me to expect a delay because of the snow. According to the weather report, 3 inches of snow is expected, which is not a lot to us in the northeast US, but is quite a bit in Seattle!

Seattle and the areas around it are very gun shy of snow and ice, they don't know how to deal with it and don't like being in it.

There was hardly any snow on the island today, but just the mere thought there might be some bad stuff made them close the schools! I wonder if she'll have classes tomorrow.

I was born in Alaska, I spent my first 4 years there, this weather is nothing compared to what they get there!

Well the snow was a non-even today. I'm just "down the hill" from SeaTac and its raining at the moment, although they say it's supposed to cool down again and turn to snow. Our weather here (particularly snow) is most difficult to forecast. The storms come in off the Pacific Ocean and hit the Olympic Mountains and it kind of "divides" them, some goes south and some goes north and some times they meet again on the west side of the mountains in our old convergence zone. You can literally drive through Everett (where much of those meet) and have pouring rain and thunderstorms and by the time you get to Seattle it's sunshine and gorgeous.

On the island we're on the water, we have two main streets on either side of our "block" and the water is right next to them. So it can be snowing hard up the hill from us but we can either have a little or none at all.
