Scenes from the back deck after
the Big Snow of 2008! Below, looking out the window of my favorite room
Today, I found myself running errands across town when the snowflakes stared falling. Just an hour earlier the weatherman said to ignore the snow since it would quickly change to rain. Fat Chance! Those of us who have lived to the Pacific Northwest for a while know that the weather up here can turn on a dime. Luckily, I dashed home and soon those flurries turned into 4 inches of snow. Rush hour traffic was tied up for hours. Still, if you are home, it's hard to beat the beauty and quiet of a snowday. Everything slows down, and it's not a bad thing that you have to too!

Couldn't resist a shot from outside into our familyroom. It still feels like Christmas.
Happy New Year Everyone! I'm definitely looking forward to a new year and a new decade.
