Sorry to have disappeared for the month of February. My mom passed away in February and needless to say all my time and energy was taken up by family things.
But it’s a new month and spring is just around the corner. At least I hope it is. I think what surprised me the most was the snow we got here in the Pacific Northwest in February.
Usually I’ll get an inch or two and it melts right away. Not this time, we got well over 1/2 a foot and it didn’t melt for quite a while. And did I mention I don’t drive well in ice and snow. It was an experience I don’t want to repeat.
I had to drive to my sister’s house and by the time I got there I was a total wreck, I had slid 5 times in the ice just trying to get to her house. She walked out to get into my car, I got out handed her my keys and said “you drive,” and broke down into tears.
My nerves were totally shot. But I made it that far without hurting myself or anyone else.
Here are some pictures for everyone to look at.
This was as the snow started:
Then a few hours later, it’s a little blurry:
And the front of my house:
I love the way it looks as long as I don’t have to go out in it.
Have a great day.
