The wild weather week

What a week in Seattle!

First we got snow, then freezing rain! I stayed home Thursday because the sidewalks and streets were a sheet of ice! And it’s been bitter cold.

I’ve been lucky because my power has not gone out; hundreds of thousands of Seattle area residents have been without power for days.

We don’t get a lot of snow in this area (we deal in rain, mostly :). Seattle has around two dozen snow plows, but the main roads were kept clear. The schools were closed most of last week.

Today, Sunday, we have some slush left, but the temperature is going up and we just have rain and wind!

Today, I’m off to buy tomatoes and 21 grain bread, clean house, and finish a book so I can write a review for Pure Textuality.

And tonight, I’m going to watch two of my favorite t.v. programs, Once Upon a Time and Downtown Abbey!
