Tripple toe loop, salchow, double lutz, axel jump. I just had to get that out of the way. Did you all watch the olympics last night? I must admit it was kind of fun to watch all these snowy and icy sports whilst it was so snowy and icy outside my house. If it's going to snow in February I say while the winter Olympics are on is a good time to do it. As you can see, we did indeed get snow. As of 11pm last night we had a little more than 4 inches at my house (and it was still snowing), we rarely get "inches" of snow in Portland. Normally when I say 'it snowed in Portland', I usually mean snow fell from the sky and that was that. But yesterday it snowed all day long and piled up around us. School was let out early for Fisher, but not early enough for me to get him, and it took him three hours to get home on the bus. Of course this was the one day his phone battery died and I admit I was a little worried (that photo of the street was on one of my attempts to try to go find him). It was cold. It wasn't snowing as hard as it looks like it was in these photos. But we had 30 mph wind gusts which made the snow whip and whirl around. It felt a lot like a blizzard. Marla was the only soul brave enough to go outside with me. And even she was skeptical and eager to get back inside. M+L tried, but only last about 30 seconds with the temperature a blistery 4 degree fahrenheit with the windchill factor. Luckily I prepared with a trip to the grocery store early yesterday morning to stock up because we are suppose to get more of the same later today. So it looks like this is going to be a stay-in weekend, which makes me even more grateful I spent last weekend out and about. I think my cabin fever would be off the charts if we went straight from flu to a double snow storm weekend. Any weekend plans for you all?
