Snowpocalypse 2012


You may have seen on the news (or not) that the Pac NW was hit with a *major* storm the last few days.  It dumped several inches (yeah inches not feet like many back east and up north are used to) of the white stuff last night. You'll are probably laughing at us. 

School was delayed in our district while many others were cancelled! 

Seattle took the brunt of it because by the afternoon, if you hadn't lived through it (ha!ha!), then you probably would not have known it had even snowed.  That's how much of insignificant (really) amount of snow we had in our area.

By the mid afternoon everything was melted and it was 50 degrees out.

You would think by all the coverage we had on this *story* that it was snowing non stop for days on end and we were all stuck in our houses.  (This did however happen back in 2007).

I shouldn't talk though because it did allow me to go into work late because the streets were pretty snowpacked and slushy at the normal time I go into work (6am). 

We didn't even get to make a snowman or snow angels.  Maybe next time.


  1. The one and only time I saw snow was on my visit to Oregon in 1987 and that was on Mt Hood.

    High thirties (celcius) where I am at the moment so I can't even fathom snow and cold.

    I think I need to add making snow angels and snowmen to my list of things to do before I die though.

  2. I have to be honest. I was fooled. The news made it sound like Stephen King's Storm of the Century in your area.

    Haha. I'm glad you're well.

  3. I am hoping that the weather predication for this weekend is right, 7inches. My DD needs to get out and be able to use her sled from Santa.
    Hope you are able to make some snow angels soon.

  5. I wish! I live in Bremerton and it stopped snowing, but never warmed up here. The snow is still on the ground and buses are only on main roads. This little spot has some nasty weather. I've lived in Seattle and though we're right across the water, the weather is worse here. Go figure! But what a fuss about so little snow.


I *heart* comments!
