Happy Saturday morning everyone! Is it snowing where you are? It is here in Portland, OR where I'm still visiting Mandy. Now what you need to understand is this isn't Spokane. Portland DOES NOT get snow like this. Ever. The city is virtually shut down. It took Brad over 3 hours to get home Thursday after work. Yesterday he and Mandy went to work together but it didn't take as long since the vast majority of people didn't go to work and all schools were closed.
This was Thursday night and the little fountain in the back yard.
This was yesterday afternoon. Even with 4 wheel drive on his pick-up, Brad said the drive home from work yesterday was treacherous. I'm glad they work close together and can carpool at times like this.
This is this morning on the front porch. It doesn't look that deep but there is at least 8-10 inches out there, maybe more. It's hard to tell the exact amount because of the blowing and drifting with the high winds the past few nights. I came to Portland to escape the snow and look what followed me. :-)
Can you see my little CRV in the driveway? This was when the snow started up again yesterday. Almost all the snow was off of it because it had been driven. That's Mandy & Brad's house. Isn't it pretty?
This is my car this morning with the snow that fell overnight. Bleh. I was supposed to go home Monday but I really don't know when I'll leave. All of this is heading to Spokane and I'm not driving 6 hours in this. Luckily, Mandy and Brad have told me I can stay as long as I want to. Hubby is missing me but agrees that the best thing is for me to just stay put. Warm and safe.
And obviously, staying with this little girl is no hardship. I brought her this blue bunny and she loves to comb it's "hair".
And kiss him
And just give him lots of hugs and love. Right Grandma?
One of her favorite pastimes is to read her books. She loves books.
Did I tell you the most important news of this post? She called me Gramma yesterday for the first time. I was watching her eat her lunch and she pointed at me and said "Gramma" clear as could be. I did a happy dance. Kissed her all over and tried to get her to say it again. I love this little girl.
Be warm. Stay safe. Happy Birthday to my good friend Taci. Enjoy your snow day my friend. :-)
