In which it's still here and glaring at it doesn't seem to get it gone
Make it stop!!!!
|It's about 2" deeper in the pasture, but I didn't want to |
get sn*wballs down my boots again just for a photo.
lytha in Germany referred to the "map of school sn*w closures", and she's right: at 3" of white stuff, we shut down the entire county. Both King and Snohomish Counties are essentially closed down today--no schools, no libraries, busses on reduced schedules.
|We aren't quite as wussy as Portland Oregon, which shuts when they get any!|
I heard that the feed store in Everett opened today and people who hadn't planned ahead sufficiently were all but dogsledding in to pick up pellets and propane this morning.
|View from the pasture. The little purple blob by the fence is my horse.|
|the bright light also makes him sneeze|
|pretty little dog|
|Roo is not a fan|
Fiddle obviously spent time outside last night.
|Yes, there are icicles on her blanket.|
|Her blanket actually froze|
Clean, dry, heavier blanket on, and out she goes into the wild white yonder.
|Eat first? Or roll first?|
|Rollin' rollin' rollin'|
After a good long roll in sn*w, it's time for a Draconic Rampage.
|Her apres-Rampage look|
|It's good for the complexion.|
The forecast (which originally called for less than an inch of sn*w, by the way) calls for continued cold temps, but no more precip until Thursday. That means that the county will try to re-open tomorrow, and we've gotta clear ourselves out.
|I cleared the landing pad by the cars by hand|
|Jim fired up the tractor to clear the steeper bit to the road.|
It is pretty.
|The purple blob is rolling again.|
But mostly, we wish for rain.
