Well, winter is finally upon us and I have to say that people in Washington have -no- idea how to handle their roads! We were officially snowed in after just 2-4 inches of snow! The number of accidents on James's boat alone was astounding, and the fact that yesterday I was able to sit at the window and watch car after car after truck after tow truck slide backwards down my little hill tells me that they have some serious issues with their snow and ice control. The streets were starting to clear, but tonight we were told to expect anywhere from 6-24 inches! And winds up to 90 miles an hour. I'm preparing for the worst... So I have books, hot chocolate, candles, flashlights, water, blankets and my hubby. For some reason I think I'll be juuuuust fine. Who says that being snowed in is a bad thing? We've already been called and told that church is cancled, it's the second time -ever- that I've not had an obligation to head out early Sunday morning.
I guess it could be worse. :)
Above is the infamous hill that claimed many a driver yesterday. Can you believe that the roads were still this bad even though the storm ended 3 days ago? Only going to get worse from here!
James and I met online a few years ago, and by a few weird twists of fate and not just a little bit of help from above, we were married January 26th, 2008 in the Provo Temple for time and all eternity. James is in the NAVY, and spends most of his time piloting a multi-billion dollar submarine, while I stay home and worry about him. He enjoys his job, and I enjoy mine. I get to cook him dinner and clean the house and do all the things that my parents never thought I would learn how to do. And I love it! I ride horses and sing, and James enjoys his collection of video games along with pool, bowling, and the occasional movie. Life is fun out here in Washington, and it's taught me that if life gives you rain, make sure to play in the puddles!
