Winter Storm 2012

A week and a half ago, on the 15th, big wet snowflakes started to fall around the South Sound. Nothing too exciting; just some small flurries. The next day, the snow started to pile up, and by Wednesday morning, everything was coated in white.

I spent last week at home, not going into work due to the amount of snow in our area. It was so nice to have extra time home with Josh and Lane! We played board games and card games, read, napped, went for walks in the snow.

And then Thursday morning, our power went out.

We still don't have it back.

The South Sound was hit with snow, and then ice, and then wind. This resulted in trees falling/branches breaking for two straight days. Over 300,000 people were without power for some length of time. The power company has been working like crazy to get power restored, including bringing hundreds of workers in from other states. They have done a great job of keeping people informed, working around the clock, and still being friendly no matter how many times people call to complain.

Here are photos from around our house on that Wednesday morning, when we had the most snow.
 Josh and Lane, all bundled up.
 Molly LOVES the snow.
 My favorite monkey and me.

  Here's the proof- 12 inches of snow!
 I think he likes it!
 The power company has promised us our power WILL be back on today at some point, and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that this is true.  All I want to do is take a shower in my own bathroom and do laundry!!
