Still here!

We are still getting snow - it's so pretty! There was so much this morning that the roads were pretty treacherous. So I walked to Starbucks and earned myself several Weight Watcher activity points. (Good thing - weigh-in's the last two weeks have not been great - I've gained a total of .6 pounds.) In the second picture - taken of the golf course between us and Starbucks - you can see big clumps of snow falling.

The main roads were clear by mid- morning, so I went shopping after lunch. Each day the snow has been pretty much gone by mid-afternoon.
We're supposed to get more tonight, and then tomorrow through Sunday there is a possibility of 6-10" more, plus freezing rain on top of that. I guess the fact that it's melting each day isn't a bad thing. It's really iffy if we will head to Oregon tomorrow for a belated celebration of our daughter-in-law's birthday. That may have to wait until after Christmas!

We still have the chains on the car although we won't try going out again until tomorrow. I am just hoping they are wrong about the wind and power outages because it is really cold here!

At the briefing, they said that the majority of Americans believe that climate change poses a moderate threat, but that it’s more of a problem for the environment and for people living outside of the U.S.
