a great day to be inside
Here in Portland, OR we think this is the most snow we have ever seen in our neighborhood.
Lots of wind blew snow in against our front door as fast as we could shovel it away yesterday.
I did a final shovel out last night before heading to bed. This morning you can see little new snow out front, what is hard to see is the one inch layer of ice over the snow. Zoe in the backyard demos walking on top of snow...you can see the dents where she "fell" through. M had to stomp down enough of an area in the back so Zoe could do her business. No driving without chains today-period. As I don't have chains that means another day of not driving anywhere for me. I am not inclined to drive anywhere so no big deal. I stopped Friday night after work and stocked up at the market on various items I thought we could run low on and would miss. We are snug and happy inside - I am going to start quilting a top for Alice, part of her Christmas celebration. I had bought a kit and stitched it up yesterday. I have Christmas music going and have wrapped a few gifts, still need to write cards up, and in general we are enjoying the weekend.
We are grateful for our cars dry in the garage
a snow shovel that does the job!
warm snow clothes to wear
our power is on
