Guess what we have...

...more snow! And it's still snowing as I type! This is crazy! Today they actually closed WSU! But since Than is in crunch time (he HAS to be done by spring, which actually means mid April) he is still there doing surgery. So I get to brave the elements this evening and go pick him up. He said he'd walk home, uh NO! He's in Wagner, and we live on the outskirts of Pullman. No way am I going to let him walk. So knowing that I'd be going to get him later, I decided I should shovel some, so it's not an insane amount to shovel later, even though it's still snowing. So here are some pics of our "Winter (Non)Wonderland." I feel for those of you in Spokane (Sarah G, Shannon B, Kim B), you have more then we do!
This is our back pourch, that I trugded through thigh high (yes, my thighs, not the kids) snow to get a pic. The snow from blowing is almost up to the window above our sink in the kitchen.

This is right our our front door, and you can see how deep it is after I shoveled. Our poor bird house!


Our trench to the car. My mound of shoveling is almost as high as the Subaru!
My mound behind the Subaru. I'm gonna have to dig it out before tomorrow night prior to me going to work!


One trench to the right for me to get in, and one to the left so the kids can get in. You can see how much snow was on the vinnie man (what Garrick initially called it, and it stuck) on the roof. To the right and behind the vinnie man, you can see the mound made by the guy that plows the road. It is taller then our car, and is a matter of inches from our drive way. He better watch where he plows next, or we will be blocked in!

Yep we have about that much too! CRAZY! It is about 35 degrees right now so lots of it is "tying" to melt, but not really working and just making a bigger soggy mess! I really can't believe it! That is CRAZY they closed WSU...have they ever done that before?

I can't believe you guys have that much snow. Some of me is jealous because I love the snow, but we have about 6 inches and that is plenty to shovel yourselve out of. Especially since I do most of the shoveling because of course it snows at night and Ryan leaves for work by 6:30 am and doesn't do it before he leaves! The neighbor saw me shovling and came and took my shovel away and wouldn't let me shovel anymore. I must be looking pretty pregnant, but a little bit of exercise is good. Just as long as I don't over due it!

That's SO CRAZY! Is it kind of fun? We are having to wear jackets outside right now, because it's like 62 degrees, but usually sunny. It's funny how fast we get accustomed to warm weather. Everyone is complaining about how cold it is, today was a bit overcast. Wierd. Oh well, think of all the good excercise you are getting shoveling snow! I loved seeing pics of your cute family, I can't believe how fast your kids are growing up! I wouldn't have recognized Garrik.

PS...after reading your "about us" page, I realized that we were married on the same day 09-09-00! Crazy eh? Have we made that connection before?
