Let It Snow?

To those of you living in places that are used to getting a lot of snow this may seem a little silly. We have had a whole week of snowy weather now and today is the second week in a row that church is canceled. People around here get a little excited when we even just have snow in the forecast, usually they over react and we get the usual winter icy cold rain. This time however, they were right. Yesterday the girls and I ventured out to do some shopping and while we were in the first store the snow started again and the streets were quickly covered in ice. In case you don't already know this, mini vans are terrible in snow! We decided we had better head home especially after we happened to see the front page of the paper. A bus hanging over I-5 is never a good thing, and with a "blizzard" in the future being out on the roads is a crazy place to be.

The snow has a way of making the whole world look different. This is one of the busiest streets in Federal Way and suddenly it looks like a mountain pass.When it first started snowing last Saturday, Laura and her friends were out it about 1/8" of snow making a puney snowman.Then by Sunday there was a little more....This week there is enough to cover everything.Well we can handle another "pajama Sunday" of playing games and making puzzles with the kids.Now as I look out the window, It's snowing again.
