It has been bone chilling cold here in our corner of the state, and
today we finally got a change from the sunny and cold weather to
precipitation. In the form of SNOW. I had to work in Eureka in the
morning, and in Willow Creek, (only 15 minutes from our house), in the
afternoon. This was a blessing, as the day went on the snow got worse. I
doubt I would have been able to make it home if I was doing my normal
work hours on the coast today.
The kids loved it, the drive and the ability to play in the powdery white stuff in their own front yard. I love my Subaru. That thing is a rock through the crazy conditions. I passed numerous spun out vehicles on my way home and never felt out of control or unsafe. A very good thing! I think we have about 3 inches of the stuff right now, just enough to make a small snowman and have some fun before it got dark. I even made a snow angel! And it's still falling! Very cozy and nice :-)
We have a high tomorrow of 36 so I hope it sticks around for awhile...
