Snowed in...

Not really. Kinda. The beautiful Pacific Northwest has had a November to remember. The most rain seen during any November on record and snow....lots of snow in some places. In 1993 we got snow, a lot of snow. I worked near downtown Seattle and took the bus to work everyday. It took me 5 hours to get home on the bus when it usually took me about an hour. Cars where left on the side of the freeway because they could not get through the snow. The next day things were much better. Today was like that...maybe worse since there was a Seahawks game last night. Some people did not get home last night because of the snow.

The area I live in really did not get a lot of snow. But the streets were covered and it was really, really cold. All the schools were closed. My first idea was to take Steve to my moms and go into work late....I was prepared to do it.....but I was told it was ok to stay home, stay safe off the road...I took that option. Now as I look out my window and see the road I feel silly for staying home...maybe I should feel silly for feeling silly.

I talked to my cousin who lives in an area that got more than 15 inches of snow and has been out of power for 2 days...now that is dealing with the weather.

No, Kylee! I don’t want to even think about snow, much less hear that it has fallen. The temperatures here are in the 60s and I want to make believe that they will remain so all winter!

Staying home was definitely a good option.... if nothing else, at least you got the day off!
