Round 2...

...was a little more impressive than Round 1. On Wednesday everyone was so worried about the snow but it never came. Then we woke up to this Thursday morning. The freeway I take to work had completely been shut down because of an accident. Brandon was so nice to drive me to the hospital on the side roads. And that excerpt from the metro article was completely accurate. We saw BMWs and other fancy cars abandoned on the road. And the most annoying part was when people hit each other they didn't take their cars to the side of the road they just left them there, got out to stand in the middle of the road, and stared at them. The funniest part of the drive into work was that we saw probably the only two snow plows Bellevue owns just sitting in a parking lot doing nothing.
Today the sun is out and it is beautiful. It will be a white Christmas after all!

It 'snowed' this weekend...if you can call it snow. The winter weather has been the topic of conversation all week and people are freaking out. Here is a picture fom our balcony of the 'snow.'. Sorry...I have to laugh. Go to Utah if you want to see real snow and winter weather.
The weather man says that 'Round 2 of this Arctic Blast' is coming in tonight and will stay through Thursday. This is a excerpt from an article on the King County Metro website telling how drivers can get ready for the upcoming storm. "And of course, the county is again reminding motorists to be prepared for winter driving. That means: having plenty of gas in the car; driving with all season tires, chains and warm clothing; and please don’t abandon your vehicle in the middle of travel lanes." I guess the have had problems with this in the past. It amazes me that people here do not know how to drive in the snow and would just give up and leave their car in the middle of the road only to create more of a headache for other drivers. Too funny! I'll let you know how we survive this winter storm.
