Now since these ARCTIC BLAST don't usual show up when they do it puts all of Western Washington into a complete tail spin. No one can drive in the snow so no one goes anywhere. This half of the state literally shuts down. Tacoma Schools closed schools for Wednesday before a flake was even seen.Well this year they were right on (who would have thunk it). I must say it took a little longer to arrive than expected but it came in spades and we woke up to 7 inches of wonderful snow.
Rumor has it more is on the way.
Since we had been hunkered down for the past couple of days already I was feeling a little cabin fevery. My mom and dad just live a few blocks away so I drug Ben with me and we went for a walk in the snow. It felt great to tromp through the snow and breathe in the fresh cold air.
In an attempt to document our adventure I brought along the camera. When I told Ben to say "cheese" he replied, "what's the point?" Snow and a 13 year old boy, ya gotta love 'em.
Hope you are all nice and toasty wherever you are.
