Wow this year has been a great snow year. Usually we only get a light dusting here in Dupont. Two years ago we got a few inches, just enough to build a snow man. But this year we have had at least a foot. Holy Cow, that's a lot of white stuff for people that don't know what to do with it. I've always thought it was funny how poor California's totally freak when it rains. All it takes is a drizzle to jam the freeways and have the school cancel recess. But here in Washington people still drive 70 miles an hour and the kids play unless there's lightning. This last week though I bet everyone in Utah and other snow states were laughing their head off at the us poor Washingtonians! We cancel school, can't get packages delivered (GRRRRR!!!) abandon our cars on the freeway and utterly refuse to take our dogs potty until it melts (oh wait that last one was just me).
Snow has turned our little town into a winter wonderland. No wonder there are so many great songs about wishing for a white Christmas. It makes the world look pure and fresh...magically clean.
We have had a great time these last few weeks enjoying our white bounty before it melts. Snowmen, forts, sledding (with other peoples sleds since every store in the entire state is sold out) walking through the forest for our Anniversary, snow laser tag, sucking on icicles, making snow angles, having snow ball fights and drinking lots of hot chocolate!
