Snow Snow and still more Snow

The roads are impassable and everything is covered in a foot of white. It's even too cold for the dogs to go outside for more than five minutes and I have to turn on the washing machine before I go to bed, in order to run hot water through the pipes to keep them from freezing. Hmmm that reminds me, I have jeans in the dryer.

It snows and everything shuts down, including the medical clinic. It always amazes me that there are people in other parts of the county are unfazed by this type of weather and yet here in Western Washington if we get two inches the schools close and most everyone stays in the house. Of course, there are also those people that use the snowfall as an excuse to stay home from work and then drive somewhere to go sledding.

I wonder if the mail will come today? Then again, I wonder if I will be able to walk through the yard to get the mail if it does come. Yesterday the snow was almost up to my knees and since then it has dumped about six more inches.

I am grateful that I don't have to go out. The kids don't want Christmas presents, do they?
