yet another snow day and more snow pics!
Yup, we got hit again last night. Woke up to several more inches of the fluffy white stuff. It's getting deep now! We had some really strong winds last night and dh and I got out of bed around 1:30AM to watch the snow whip around, it was quite the sight, something we've not seen before. Heck, I haven't seen this much snow other than the few times I have been up in the mountains. If I had to take a guess, I'd say we have at least 15-18" if not more. As you can see it's up to our dog Angel's belly. It didn't stop her from havinf her fun in the snow though. ;) We're due for another 3" tonight/early tomorrow morning and another pretty heavy storm this weekend which they are saying could be similar to what we had last weekend which dumped 14" in many areas. WOW! The news reported tonight that this is the 4th biggest Jan. snow month in recorded history in Spokane. For sure!
Kenny put his foot down this morning and took the Expedition so I wouldn't get out and drive in this mess. He knows me well enough to know that I wouldn't have stayed home. And since I can't drive his truck with my cast, I was stuck. I did debate calling a cab, but decided against it. heehee. I really hated to miss Physical Therapy, but sometimes things just happen that are out of our control. Sigh. I just want to keep moving forward and missing a day will set me back. :(
We took advantage of the snow day yesterday though. I took the kids to Mission Park to sled yesterday for a few hours, and they had a blast! The runs were steep and icy and perfect for sledding! I got some pretty good pics, but it wasn't easy to get around. I then took them to Pizza for lunch and to visit Kenny at work. We stopped by the park again after lunch, but it was pretty busy so we went home. When Kenny got home we took them back for some night sledding. It was awesome! The kids tried some stepper slopes and had a super time! It was really cold, but we stayed from 6-8PM. It wasn't too busy and it was such fun to watch them. I was REALLY tempted to go down myself, but decided against it. I am so bummed that I am out of commission this year.
This is the card I made for the Di Hickman Jan. #5 sketch. I wanted to try something more masculine and simple. I like how it turned out.
I am working on my first DT project for MyAcrylicAlbums. I am really excited but nervous since this will be my first mini-album ever. I hope I do it justice. We shall soon see! Be sure to check out the contest for your chance to win a $25 gc to the MyAcrylicAlbum store!
