Note to the weather

Hi, Carrie here.  Um, in case you've gotten confused- this is Seattle. Not Boston or Chicago or one of those cold places.  Seattle.  Winter here consists of a lot of rain and gray days and damp people wandering around holding travel cups full of coffee. You're confusing the heck out of us.  Feel free to relocate this snow back to Canada or Alaska anytime soon. Okay, thanks.

So, anyway, it's Sunday afternoon now, and it's snowing again. A lot. We reportedly got about 5 inches in downtown Seattle last night. Which is freaky. Generally Seattle itself doesn't get much snow, since we're next to the water. But it started snowing at 3 PM yesterday and didn't stop until about 2 AM.  We went out this morning to play, and discovered that the snow looked pretty, but was actually covered by a thin layer of ice, so it was sort of painful to walk through. And now there's snow on top of that- apparently we are supposed to get another 6 inches. I don't even know how to process that information.  Doubt seriously that I'm going to the office tomorrow though.  Not sure how Daniel and I are both going to work from home tomorrow with one laptop and a toddler running loose. Should be fun!

Photos from today! Ethan is an inside kid, so he was less than enthusiastic about the playing in the snow.

Have fun and stay safe in the snow! We are thanking our lucky stars we flew out on Thursday to San Diego and not this weekend, or we would have been stranded at the airport and gotten snowed in!
