Winter has really come to the Big Piney Woods, and all of the Pacific Northwest. Even Seattle got snow! It started Saturday night, and by last night we had well over 2 feet! Then it turned to rain, so has packed, and is so heavy it is almost impossible to shovel. Yesterday, it was incredibly beautiful, a marshmallow world. The ski area is set to open on Wednesday, so hope they don't get the rain we are getting in the valley. The schools are closed and the plow has gone passed our place four times yesterday, and again early this morning. We lost reception on our dish 5 times, and had to clean it off. Luckily, we still have power, although the lights have flickered. The cats are unaffected, except when the snow slides off the roof!! Mistrie is keeping warm in the woodshed.
