Boy this has been a crazy week. So here it is in photos.
Saturday – Auntie Steffi, Unkie Paul, Oliver and Finley arrive to find scattered snow flurries. Luckily we were cozy inside watching football games.
Sunday – We woke up to about an inch of snow on the ground. The boys headed out to play in snow – round one. After round 2 of snow on Sunday we ended up with about 4 inches. More fun for the boys!
Monday – A morning of errands for some and more snow play. Then an afternoon of Xbox.
Tuesday – We were supposed to take the kids up to the pass for a little skiing (we were going to keep Jack home from school, but they ended up canceling school), unfortunately we woke up to the pass being closed for six hours. We reworked our plans and went sledding at Snoqualmie Ridge instead, since we had very little snow at our house. Sunday’s and Monday’s accumulations had melted.
Wednesday – No school again and bunches of snow. We took the boys to a small hill in the neighborhood to give the little boys (Will and Oliver) a chance to try out skiing. Unfortunately or luckily depending upon how you look at (airport closed on Thursday) it our visitors headed home.
Thursday – Ice storm. The storm was supposed to be over and instead it got worse. School was canceled again. We had freezing rain all morning and then more snow again in the afternoon and evening. Our power went out at 8 a.m. By 2 p.m. it was 58 degrees in our house. Luckily we have good neighbors who have a generator so we headed there for dinner and much needed warmth.
Friday – The power came on at 12:30 a.m. and the cable came on late morning, so life is almost back to normal. We still have inches of snow on the ground, but the ice is melting. Hopefully school will be back in session by Monday.
We will be back to our normal programming next week.
