I forgot you're on the island, for some reason I always think of you being out on the KP, and they always get hit with snow, more than most anyone else (except Bellingham that is :) )

LOL! I wish I could forget I was on the island! I don't like living here.

I'd not like to be dependent on the ferries to get me to and fro, but then the lifestyle is a bit quieter eh?

Thanks for the weather update at SeaTac. Hopefully my daughter's plane will be on time. I'm going to the airport directly from school as it is close by and I don't relish the idea of waiting there for hours. I will bring a book of course. I literally just finished A Question of Guilt and now I have to go upstairs and look at my TBR shelves and choose a book to read.

We had our Christmas lunch at work today. It took over an hour for all the food to be served, even though we pre-ordered, they ran out of some dishes, and the food was average! Oh, and now it is repeating on me!

Chances are we won't be eating there again.

That's pretty bad. I hoped they comped some meals.

Susan, the snow started in earnest this morning. I think I've got an inch or two so far in the valley but they've got more up north. Keep those fingers crossed.

It snowed here as well, there's new snow on the ground outside and guess what, they actually had school today! So yesterday when there was no snow, no school, today snow, today school. Weird!

This morning I woke up to a wonderful surprise....the garbage can had been knocked over and garbage was all over the kitchen and dining room...including flour and powdered sugar from baking christmas cookies..it was all over the place! Arrrgh!! Looks like my two Savannah cats were busy last night...and I'm sure the dog joined in as well. I swear those two cats are brats!! My fiance didn't take out the full garbage can like he was suppossed to last night. My Savannahs can't resist a full garbage can with all its treats and goodies! I cleaned up what I could in the time but I have to mop the floor again when I get home! Everyone, including the fiance, is grounded for a month!!!! :P
