One last winter blast?
This winter's weather has been generally pretty mild here in NW Washington; however, last week provided an extra winter break for the kids from school and dumped an unusual amount of snow north of Seattle. The major interstate had to close for several hours one night as too many folks were abandoning cars in the quick flurry that dumped 24 inches just north of where we live in just a few hours. We didn't get quite that much, but we did enjoy some sledding down the driveway hill, and even though Nic is getting bigger, she still managed to hitch a ride on Dad's back for a trip that lasted a good 500 feet down to our barn. Sometimes it's a load of fun having such a great hill on the property!
