Would you believe....part trois?

OK, guys, here is yet another picture of my patio table under snow. A not so careful observation of this picture (taken this morning) and the one below it from a few days ago, will show you that, yes, we've had more snow! In the paper this morning I read that we are on the verge of declairing a state of emergency! Schools are closed throughout the area, Spokane is RENTING extra plows to clear the roads, and our roads are getting narrower and narrower with street crews and police and firemen working extra, exhausting shifts! Yikes! Oh, and we are supposed to get more snow this weekend, but the weather won't get warm enough for this snow to melt at all before the next dumping! Thankfully someone plowed my driveway while I was gone teaching yesterday, and they thought to plow out the mailbox, too, so we finally got mail for the first time this week! ("Neither rain nor wind, nor snow, nor ice...." yeah, yeah!)
Stay tuned for Saturday's picture! I hope the table holds up!

Yikes! At least it is pretty to look at, especially from 3000 miles away. We have yet to have any snow stick around and I am saying my thank you prayers every night. I know that snow is coming becasue Emma is praying for a good dumping and I am pretty sure that her prayers carry a little more weight in that category. Love ya!

Wow. I don't remember that much snow ever. Glad dad got home okay, though. Love ya! Oh, I'll take 5 inches over all that stuff any day. At least it is pretty in a picture!

Finally I get to see it! Mom has been saying she'll put pictures up for well over a week now, and, guess what...nothing. It's been killing me. Such beautiful snow. It sounds like i'm the weird one when I say I wish I was there to be in it. Love you guys.
