An excuse to stay home from work

Snow, high winds, and frozen rain was all in the forecast for the Pacific NW. Overnight here on Whidbey Island , well at least at our house, we got about 6inches of snow on the driveway and drifts of up to 10 inches on the front deck and elsewhere on the property. Also it seems that there must have been some wind, as the snow has been blown under our carport. fortunately we did not receive any frozen rain.




I am standing in front of
my vegetable garden and thinking how
pretty it looks, all covered in snow,
and at the same time, wishing
for an early spring.

He is finally on the mend,
and feels a little better
each new day












To prove that there was almost 10 inches of snow on the front deck, I pushed the ruler down into the snow.

this is so strange for me
will the snow stay, or will it melt in a few days???

Mediterranean kiwi, it all depends if the weather warms up. So far it has stayed around freezing, and I think the forecast is for more of the same temperatures for the next few days.
