That’s taken from my front porch in about three seconds because it’s 15 degrees and I was cold! Not a lot of snow but just beneath it is ice. About three inches thick.
I know that folks from parts of the country who routinely see snow laugh at Seattleites when it snows here and everything simply stops. But we have steep hills and essentially no infrastructure for big snow storms like we had last night. And oh did we!
The problem wasn’t so much the snow as the three inch thick sheet of ice beneath it. I am so glad my husband worked from home yesterday because it took some people up to seven hours to get home from work last night. There was also a Seahawks game and apparently there are people STILL on the freeway trying to get home! They’ve closed the freeways on and off, people abandoned their cars and some people just slept in them at rest stops and park and rides!
Anyway, pretty much all schools in Western Washington are closed today so we’re all here, tucked up and warm. The kids are watching Ice Age and the wee monster is tormenting them. All is right with the world, LOL.
I get to keep my title for Threat of Darkness! Yay! This makes me very happy, I love that title. I’m 28 thousand words into Chased and starting something else in between that’s been stewing in my head for three months. But of course Chased is my priority (I promise Angie!). I lurve me some Marc Chase!
Okay, off to get a refill on my coffee!
