Wow. I’m sitting here looking out the window at the whiteness outside. It’s beautiful. And, in Seattle, apparently very dangerous.
There’s barely an inch of snow on the ground – in some places they’re talking about TWO inches! I kid you not, people are calling this a “snow storm” (uh…?), they closed schools, and the news is telling people to have extra food & clothing on hand.
So much for my image of the rugged, hearty Pacific Northwester. I get it. You don’t get a lot of snow here. But drive carefully and go about your day. In the Northeast, when we close schools and talk about snowmageddeon, it’s because we get over a foot of snow. The snow isn’t even laying over sheets of ice, as is typical in the northeast.
Back in Philly, the big joke was how everyone would go out and clear all the grocery store shelves of bread & bottled water before a big storm – a big storm that would actually have you trapped inside for a day. (And god knows, you must eat a lot of bread on a snowy day?)
So. Wow. Well, all the better for us – that means Mr Nikki gets to stay home extra days and when Nugget is school age, SNOW DAYS!
