Up here in there Great Northwest, we have an awful secret. At the sight of the first snowflake, all of Western Washington shuts down and we are glued to our TV's to just how bad it is going to get. Seriously, I think the folks in Las Vegas freak out less at the sight of snow than we do. However, there is nothing better than a good dumping of snow.
Where we live we were actually spared some of the really heavy snow, but there was enough to close the schools. On Wednesday, the schools closed because they thought they would get snow, but now snow came. Our district was one of the only schools to be open on Thursday after a two hour delay. The snow hit about an hour in and they decided to close school early. Friday was a half day and they decided to bag it altogether. We probably have about 3 inches of snow and that is enough for me. It is pretty to look at, but not impossible to get around in. Which is a good thing, because I'm not done with my shopping and Ben's birthday is on Sunday. Yikes :0)
