snow belongs in cones!

well, this day was a total waste of makeup.
most of you know that i don't like snow. nope, not really at all. i don't like to be cold and i have never had a job that is just ok with me having a snow day. it's really bad. today spokane hit the most snowfall in a 24 hour period ever. we are well into hour 32 of continuous snowfall. the streets are lined with cars that are stuck as well as accidents. it is a different kind of snow this time, it is pure powder. no moisture to it, so this is why it is piling up so easily. we have 22" in the front yard. we have 3 steps that lead to the front porch and you cannot tell that we have steps, the snow comes up to the level of the porch.

when we woke up this morning we knew we had to get up early and try to dig ourselves out of the driveway. we started digging shortly after 6 and at 8:30, we realized this was not working. i got out of the driveway, but our road was un traveled and about 3feet of snow surrounded us. i got stuck right in the middle of the road and it took 30 mn or so, to get back into the driveway. jodi from work was in the area rounding up others, and she was nice enough to come get me. chef dave drove me home, and i was all safe and warm by 3:30 this afternoon. it is worse now. we had a truck come and attempt to plow it, and they got stuck. many things out of the norm are closed and canceled. obviously all of the schools are canceled, but for the first time here, they canceled mail service due to weather. banks are closed. banks! people are stranded, have no groceries and cant even get money out. it has been so cold this last week that most ATM's that are outdoors, are no longer working. nathan had to make 3 stops to find one that would dispense money. the malls closed, and they asked that no cars be on the road unless you are a snowplow or a firetruck. i guess today i was a firetruck. loomis canceled their routes! (that is the armored truck that brings businesses their money) i don't know what we are going to do tomorrow for building our cash bags. no matter what happens and how bad it gets, loomis is always running. and they canceled their routes today. we see that seattle is bad as well. it just seems that we are sharing most of our weather qualities this year. poop on it. all of it.

PPPPOOOOOOOPPPP! you said poop. HAHAHAHAAA!!! We have snow, but not nearly as much, maybe 10 inches? I don't know. I've lived through blizzards like that in Wyoming, but never in Washington. There was no milk in the stores. Wow, I should really go grocery shopping before all of those horrible things happen HERE!
