Snow for 2 weeks

27 Dec

In my lifetime in Washington state, winters have been mild and mostly rainy. I can count on one hand the number of White Christmas’ that have occured in my lifetime. This was the first time since 1861 that there was a foot of snow in the ground on Christmas day…amazing! It even snowed, huge flakes that came down so heavy it left at least an inch in the 30 minutes or so it fell! This year was one for the record books. Snow here in Everett started Sat Dec 13. My dad was outside putting up lights at his house and it was lightly snowing…beautiful! Then the snow started coming down harder…and harder. By Monday there were inches…by the following Sunday, with the extra several inches that fell that day (during a Seahawks win over the Jets!!) we had over a foot!

Our apartment complex was pretty horrible. Infact, it was a nightmare! We are lucky to have an all wheel drive Jeep, but for those that don’t, there were cars stuck all over the parking lot, even a tow truck! We spent Monday the 22nd inside with the shades open watching people trying to get through the parking lot. Tuesday we went out and helped people get around, if we could. The 4-6 inches of ice under the snow was the tricky part! Even now, as I write this, there is a car struggling to get out of their parking spot. Most people now are wondering when it will finally be gone!

I only took a couple pictures of the snow, it was too cold 🙂
