Looks like it’s coming to an end unless this rain is temporary, but the roads are a mix of deep piles of snow and water, a slippery and unpleasant slush mix. Four wheel drivers should be fine driving in these conditions. We live almost on top of a Magnolia hill, going down and up is a dangerous ordeal I will not take a chance with, tree branches weighed down by the wet snow are breaking off, I’ve heard ambulance sirens since early this morning, and car tires screeching are some of the signs that snowy winter in Seattle is dangerous.
Yesterday, while going for a walk surrounded by super large snowflakes falling down I was approached by a few drunk guys ready to tell me their life stories. Nothing else to do but drink for some guys, I guess. Chet joined me and we had peace the remaining of our walk.
Sure places like Montana and Colorado, Canada and Eastern Europe is used to this sort of winter but to us, this is rare:))) About once a year I’d say. This year it happened twice:))) Snowpocalypse continues:))))))
It’s about to start:)))) Alberstons in Magnolia was running out of eggs yesterday, and New Seasons in Ballard was full last night. Thousands of dollars were spent yesterday and I’m sure today is a similar scenario. The school is going to close 75 minutes earlier and since we live on a hill, a shady hill still hosting slippery and snowy patches, Chet’s planning to come home early… if it gets bad out there that is. Thus we prepared. If the weather suddenly decides to remain sunny, warm and void of snow, we’re set with food for the upcoming six months:)))) I think it’s hilarious how much agitation is around the snow but it wasn’t funny when I was running out of certain foods the first time it snowed. My daughter is out driving, on her way home and texted us that’s chaos out here already, a stop and go traffic in Magnolia at the Fisherman’s terminal. The construction workers just stopped working and are leaving. I heard them out there laughing about not wanting to get stuck for the whole weekend here:)
I will most likely get cabin fever soon so I’ll have lots of time to write blogs these coming days, cooped up in here. Baking and writing I guess:))))))
