Oh the weather outside is frightful...

I'm not the hugest fan of the snow. I don't ski, sled, or make snowmen...so to me, snow, is just something crappy that i have to drive in. So when our little town got a snowstorm I was less than pleased. It has been soooooooooooo cold, the roads have been awful, and the snow isn't going away any time soon. 

This was our driveway the morning after the huge snowstorm. about 3 feet of snow, and no way to get out! After a few phone calls, we got a friend with a tractor to come out and clear a path.  Even the tractor almost got stuck!

 Emily, showing how deep it is!
 Scenes from our window. I tried staying inside. Cuddled in a blanket, and trying to keep warm.



 Q enjoyed looking at the snow from inside, but had little interest in going outside. She's not a fan of the cold.



The day after the big storm hit, I had to go pick up Mitch from the airport. I was originally supposed to drive to Seattle, but was feeling very uncomfortable about that decision, so that morning I bought him a ticket from seattle to spokane. The drive over to Spokane wasn't that bad. The roads were a little snowy and icy, and I had to drive a little slower than normal...but the drive back was ridiculous. Apparently there was a major accident outside of Sprague and there was miles of stand still traffic.
aghhhh. oh I how I dislike the snow. 
Maybe I need to consider a move to a very warm location!

Cool photos but I'm definitely over this cold and snow too. Today it stayed foggy and gloomy all day, so depressing day after day. Hope we see the sun tomorrow.

At least you know how to drive in the snow! I'm scared to death of it.

I hate everything about that for you. Besides the pretty pictures.

Wow I've been behind on blogging. I can't remember the last time it snowed like that in Moses Lake. Crazy.
