You may have seen the meme about all the snow Seattle got last week. Too funny!
I know for some parts of the country what we got was nuthin' but for Seattle, this was more snow than we'd seen in 23 years.
My flight home from San Diego was canceled on Monday due to the snow and they automatically rescheduled me for a flight early Tuesday morning. I thought it was awesome because I didn't have to do a thing. On Sunday afternoon I got a text that said, "Flight 111 is canceled and now you're on Flight 222." It was great!
As soon as we broke through the clouds descending into Seattle, everything was covered with snow!
I absolutely love the snow, this was so beautiful!
The roads were clear but even today, there is snow piled up in parking lots, in everyone's yards... Like I said, we don't normally get snow like this. Usually it'll snow for a day or two and we'll get a couple inches, but then it melts right away and there's no issues with traffic or blocking roads or anything.
But not this time!
It snowed a few inches a couple weeks ago and I took these pictures of Allie in our backyard before I went to San Diego. Chuck said while I was gone we got another 6-7 inches.
Three days after I got home Beth and I went to the grocery store. She helped me brush the snow off my car and bring in the groceries.
(You can't even see her feet! Remember those snow boots we bought a few months ago? I'm so glad we got them!)
Unfortunately it looks like we're done with snow for this year. We might see some snow fall but no accumulation. Last night I sat out in the backyard with some hot tea and watched the sun go down behind the trees that are on the hill behind our house.
And I smiled because our backyard is still filled with snow!
Do you like the snow?
When is the last time you got more snow than usual?
