What are the chances...

that we would be both starting and ending our Holiday Break with snow days. This is what our backyard looks like right now:


It is a wet and heavy snow. The DH and I took a short walk and then I hastily make this Snow Gal:



I say hastily because it was turning to rain as I slipped the mittens onto her stick hands. As I sit here keyboarding I can hear the plink, plink, plink of rain. Good thing my book bag is packed and the parent letter is written (I even posted it in a page on my 'other blog'.)

It's Monday morning now and while some districts around us are starting late we are starting on time. There are some power outages in West Seattle and on ALL of Vashon Is. We are lucky to have been spared that inconvenience. I think we will be having inside recess here too, Barbara. Eeek! is right!

Wow...that's crazy..I still can't believe all the snow Seattle has gotten this winter! Sorry you had to start school.....(we don't start till next week, so of course I'm still "working" on my report cards.)
