that didn't happen!!
For days the weather man has been predicting a once in a generation snowstorm...you know...the kind you tell your grandkids about..."I remember when there was 20 inches in one day!!". That kind of storm. And yes, they were thinking around 20 inches!!! That's huge around here!!!
Well, the snow started last evening...beautiful, sparkly snowflakes whirling out of the sky!! The kids were giddy with excitement at bedtime. Sweet hubby and I took a lovely walk and enjoyed a chat with the neighbors (everyone seems to come out in weather like that!!).
But when I awoke this morning the first thing that registered in my brain was the gurgling in the rain gutters :0( !!! Our epic snowstorm had turned into a yucky, slushy mess of rain and wind. And the rain is scheduled to last for days...the kind of rain that makes Seattlites have to take Vitamin D in tablet form to survive!!!
So in the mourning our loss of sledding and snowman building we decided to pretend we were snowbound:
We built a fire and got out all the Lego's:
So all the grown-ups and kids in this house are praying for another chance at an epic snowstorm. I would love a great snow story to tell my grand kids!!!!
