This picture explains the canceled school, the constant heap of snow clothes drying out in the laundry room and the huge quantities of boardgames played and movies watched this past week. And who wants to talk about global warming?? We have had one of the worst winter storms and coldest weather in the past decade here in the great Northwest for the last 7 days. As long as our power doesn't go out, we will continue to enjoy the beauty, extra family time together and fun!

A few shots in the blustry snow before Bart and the boys headed out to the BIG hill to sled. As you can tell, Bo wasn't too into it (the lack of naps the past few days hasn't helped).
Official measurement from this am -Sunday morning, Dec 21st - was between 8 and 9 inches (once I could break the 1/2 inch layer of ice on top of the snow to get the ruler down into the pile). Snow, freezing rain, sleet...we've been getting it all and it just keeps piling up!

Apologies for the pajamas...Bart thought that my stompped out footprints through the snow/ice on the way out the the patio table for snow measurements were worthy of a picture too.

We're dreaming of a white Christmas!

Logan's gotten a few inches too. I went skiing for the first time this weekend and LOVED it.
