All week everyone has been going on and on about

It's been snowing lightly off and on over the weekend, and honestly, yesterday was bright and sunny!
Boy it hit hard last night though!  We woke up to a full 8 inches of smooth glistening white.  It's Beautiful!  Us Washingtonians are a temperate culture, so anytime the temperature goes outside of our 40 to 75 degree temperature radius.... well, we complain.  When it does actually snow here, (which it does a few times a year.) most of us just stay indoors!  The Great American Mid West would call us all a bunch of sissy's!  Maybe its true, but I certainly enjoy snow most from inside my home.

Curtis got the day off work so we've just been watching the snow lightly fall outside our window all day, while we cozy up in warm blankets, drink Black Tea (with just a splash of Disaronno Amaretto Liquor), and watch the Wonder Years on Netflix.  Curt and I did take a short walk on the beach and snatched a few photos, but me being the pansy that I am high tailed it right back indoors.

Just around the corner from our house is the Des Moines Marina.  A local photographer David Sharp, snapped this awesome photo of a frozen Puget Sound, and posted it on the Des Moines Marina Facebook page.  Such a great photo!

Even our cat Tula got in on a little snow action today!

I hope everyone out there in snow land is enjoying some warm blankets, loved ones, hot drinks and staying safe.

So strange to see snow on a beach, I think! =) All the neighborhood kids were sledding in our driveway today. It was awesome!!

Wow... great shots. I've only seen snow on the beach once, and that was in Connecticut. So cool. Enjoy it for us.
