Nothing but news on tv, with around the clock news coverage of....

Arctic Blast 2008

There are very few planes leaving the area.
Tri-Met is having trouble.
State of emergency in a neighboring town.
15 inches and still coming down.
Slippery roads.
Fine---now let's get back to Regis and Kelly!!

Here's my pics (not that they are original in anyway-just to give you an idea of what I am living with right now.

Day 2 vs. Day 7:

My car - love the fog lights poking out! I drove two days ago, so my car isn't too buried.

not a happy cat!

Driving is not recommended.

This is the scary hill leading into the apartment complex. It was the worst part of my drive the last week and Saturday when I went out, there were cars parked all along this street after failing to make it up the hill.

(yes, I made it up--and stopped at the top to applaud my superior driving skills)

    Oh Kaylen dear, I do feel for you having to go through the snowy weather - last winter was just so terrible for us people here in good ole Iowa, then this spring we had the floods and my office had to be relocated for about a month - so spring/summer was really cut short - and now guess what - it's winter again and thus far, oh my goodness, the days and weather just seem so much worse already - yeah worse than last winter. It is cold and icey, and then it gets colder and snows some more and I have to struggle to get to work (remember I am older and I really hate driving on the ice but trust me, I am a very cautious, slow driver and may be late for work but I usually get here!!)). Seems like I need to get up and shovel about every morning because I live out in the open and it always, yes always, drifts right in front of my garage and I have to shovel in order to get out of the garage/driveway), there's about 5 inches of ice on my driveway/ sidewalks, and I am just getting way too old to be out shoveling, so, what I am trying to say, be careful. And I am somewhat jealous because I have never had anyone build a snowman on my car!!!

    Take care, be warm, drive carefully!!

    Love the fog lights on the car pic - that is hilarious! Your hill does look scary - I don't blame you one bit for not wanting to venture out to work last week on the worst days! Woke up to snow here in GP this morning... maybe we'll have a white Christmas too :)
