First and foremost -- thank you to EVERYONE who read and left comments on yesterday's post.. Not only was my M.A.N. in love with this post (he is NOT modest;) he loved the comments as well. Particularly the ones shedding light on how lucky I am -- BAHAHA!!
Okay.. So as most of you know I recently relocated from the Aloha State, where it's a mild 80-degrees year round, sunny and clear blue skies with light trade winds... to the stone-cold, wet, and rainy---and extra snowy--Seattle. The last several days the entire state has been socked-in with supposedly the gnarliest snow storm they have seen in years!
Actually, it hasn't bothered me all that much since I was thankfully not part of the 300,000 residences without power over the course of this storm. Thus, being cozy in our cramped little studio hasn't been that bad considering the sobering alternative!
Yesterday I ventured out in the elements because my Dad had a doctors appointment downtown, and the roads were cray cray!! In fact, for the first time I was glad not to be driving! Check out our truck!!
|Lots of snow!!|
|Only saw one car in a ditch en route!|
Maneuvering around the hills in Seattle was less than desirable, especially if you didn't have an equipped or winterized vehicle like us. People really should have stayed home if given the opportunity, there were so many unfortunate accidents and deaths reported. There was definitely legit reasoning declaring a state of emergency.
Most streets were actually closed and people were sledding, skiing, and snowboarding down them -- Watch this video!
..Until the cops made them stop!! Awww!!
We were blessed to get from A to B and back safely. It was supposed to get above freezing and start raining; however, it didn't -- in fact it ended up just snowing some more!
Yesterday (afternoon) I was going to meet up with one of my cousins, but couldn't even make it out onto the main road! The less traveled roads were still really bad, so I just parked & got cozy again!
Do you ski or snowboard?
