I know you in the actual Midwest and Northeast and Canada and etc. will laugh at us here in Seattle, but we are not used to this.
SNOW! It's so beautiful here. I just can't believe it.
Em made it home from Ohio on Saturday, between storms and only about 40 minutes later than scheduled. I was anxious that she might get stuck somewhere as she flew through Chicago's O'hare airport, but all went smoothly.
Well, except that her luggage didn't show up until 11:30 last night, but on the plus side, she looks cute in The Mister's jeans.
The Mister's fancy-ass SUV FAILED to make it up the driveway on Thursday morning. (Not gloating, not!) This thing is so fancy it has many special settings for driving in different conditions:
1) Loose gravel less than 20mm
2) Loose gravel greater than 20mm
3) Gravel that stays home at night
4) Plague of locusts (crunch, crunch)
5) Snowing lightly
6) Snowing heavily
7) Snowing somewhere else
What it does lack is a setting for getting it up the driveway.
So we spent 2 hours clearing the driveway (we have a long driveway) and got his car up and it has been parked on the street ever since.
It's been kind of fun. We venture out once a day to hunt and gather (at Top Foods) and then head back home to watch trashy movies and eat popcorn.
Today i went to the hardware store, hoping to maybe buy a snow shovel. Of course i am the 5,436th person with that idea, but they did tell me that they were expecting a small shipment in about an hour.
After lunch i called the store back to see if they were in yet and was told to hurry back as they were in and going fast. I had to shove a few old men and a woman with a baby out of the way, but i am now the proud owner of a $15 red plastic snow shovel. Wheeeeee!!
More snow expected tomorrow. Thank god i have my shovel.
