The Weather Outside Is Frightful . . .

The snow yesterday, as my dad would say, was a$$ deep to a giraffe.

As I said before we have ice on the bottom, about 6 inches of fluffy snow, another 1/2 inch layer of ice, then another 3 or 4 inches of snow, and another 1/2 layer of ice, and it snowed again today. It's like a holiday "torte" of snow and ice.

Even though we've been housebound for several days, and it's looking like we won't be getting out tomorrow, either, because the high for today was twenty-freaking-four, it's really hard to not like the view from my living room.

It's like having a giant Christmas card out every window.

And every tree, bush, and shrub has been decorated with frozen berries and icicles.

But, seriously, enough is enough.


  1. Yes, enough is enough! It's going to take a while to melt, too.

    We walked to Fred Meyer today. Somehow the two mile loop is way more tiring in Michelin Tire Man garb. I'm done.

  2. We managed to get out to Tanasbourne today. I almost got hit by a falling icicle. If it's not one thing it's another! :P

  3. BEAUTIFUL photo of the stand of evergreens covered in snow. It's got to be the best photo I've seen of all these recent snows.

  4. Keep an eye out for wooly mamoths. I heard we might get some more snow tonight.
