Snowpocalypse 2011

In case you hadn’t heard the news, we got dumped on in Skagit County today.  Observe:

Snow 009

That’s our car in the street… we think a cat ran over the front of it.


Here is the backyard:


Snow 011

As you can see, the snow is still coming down.  These photos were taken at 7:15 PM and we are expected to have snow all night long.


As of 7:15 PM, the accumulation is 15 inches:

Snow 015


Looks like a snow day tomorrow!!!


Charles is excited, and preparing his toy chest for a big day:

Snow 007




Oh, yes, we went out in the snow… the temptation was too great.  After I got the mail and fell in to the powder up to my knees in the front yard, we knew we had to take advantage of the situation.  We played around, jumping and hoisting Charles from spot to spot, while Buster bounded out paths and forded trails.  18 inches of snow is a lot when you are only 37 inches tall:

WOW!!! 15 inches! We have, well... nothing, really. But the roads are wet and it's very cold, so maybe we will have an ice day?

Have fun!
