Well, I will say 2016 went out with a bang. And by that I mean snow. While others where wishing for snow I wasn’t. You see New Year’s day I had tickets to go see Rogue One.
I’m a big Star Wars fan, so me and my family planned this out. We were going to the IPic theater. For those of you who don’t know, the IPic has these nice reclining seats, and you have your own waiter to get your food. They bring you free popcorn and water.
It can be expensive, but well worth it for first run movies. I was eagerly waiting. Then it snowed. Let me explain, I was born and raised in San Francisco where I’ve seen snow in SF twice in my lifetime and even then the close the city down. Since I’ve moved to Washington, I’ve seen snow. I’ve driven in it once and just about had a nervous breakdown. I don’t like it when my car starts skidding all over the place.
So this Sunday morning, I wasn’t too happy to see that it snowed, but where I live there was just a little dusting. I knew the two icy spots coming out of my complex, so figured things would be okay. I will say this, I made it to my sister’s house. It took me about 35 minutes for a 10 mile drive. While I had just seen a dusting, my sister had inches. Her roads were much worse than mine. But I made it to her house, sat in my car for a few minutes until I finished shaking. Going home that night wasn’t too bad except for my sister’s house because their roads were still bad.
That said Rogue One was a great movie, a nice lead up to A New Hope. It was a little bitter sweet with the death of Carrie Fisher, but I can’t wait for the next installment.
Here’s a picture of the snow at my sister’s house:
And of course what would a month be without a Penny picture – this was taken after I had her groomed. I had her ears colored – I won’t do it again even though she looks really cute. But she’s got pink nails again.
