Another Snow Day

I'm starting to feel like a broken record..."another snow day", but here we sit more snow. We got dumped on again yesterday, adding to the mess of snow we already had without any help or equipment to dig it out. (I think we are up to about 18 inches of snow now!) The University of Washington where Drew works even closed for the day so it really felt like a snow day with Drew home. (This hasn't happened at the U of WA in over fifteen years so this is definitely a BIG deal.)

The entire family took advantage of being stuck at home (for yet another day) and delivered homemade pumpkin bread to our neighbors by cross country skis. The neighborhood was surprised to see us out (in style of course), but they were excited to have some goodies from my kitchen. It was a great chance to check in with everyone and remark on this crazy weather as well as GET OUT OF THE HOUSE. (Ah. Ahem. Sorry folks...just having a bit of cabin fever.)

Honestly, I am shocked at how "home bound" I am feeling. I can't even remember how I handled a whole winter of the white stuff when I was growing up in Iowa. And just when I think it can't get worse, I've heard we are suppose to get more snow in the next couple of days. Goodness. I guess we are going to have a "white Christmas" this year in the Pacific Northwest whether we like it or not.

OK! This is pretty and all of that, but you keep sending your weather east and we are getting tired of it in IA! MOM

Rachel and I are flying out on Christmas Day to see the snow in the midwest, little did we know that we would have all we needed right here in Seattle!

DO you remember the old movie (I think it was called "Snow plow")? The only thing I can remember about it is that the driver always threw snow into your drive just as you got your drive rid of snow. Dad
