Spring ???
« on: January 19, 2012, 09:21:38 AM »
Who else is ready for spring?  Last summer was more like spring, maybe we will get a summer this year.  I am so ready for warm sunny hot day or two.  Then it can go back to 72 and sunny.  I am so white I make a white sheet look gray. 

Ah the trials of living in the Pacific Northwest.  Snow sucks the big one here.

Spring, I want SPRING!

I'm ready for spring too. BTW I spent three years in Bremerton when I was in the Navy. I can't say I miss that pacific northwest weather.

Snow and single digits here.  I hope my bees appreciate all that foam insulation I gave them :-D

Spring is still a LONG ways off, unfortunately.

"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

Oh No!  I have to worry about trees falling and landslide, no flooding concerns.  Sorry, I prefer the rain to the snow.  Snow here sucks the big one.  I have lived in Alaska, South Dakota, Arizona Mountains, and West Slope of Colorado.  I know snow.  I prefer any of those others to snow here.  Folks here are bizarre in the snow and I won't even exit the house.  Then there is the ice....bringing down trees and wires....remember I live at the mouth of the gorge and get that dang wind to boot. 

And we never really had a summer last year.  Guess we won't have to worry about drought this summer now.  10 inches of rain.  Lotta rain.

Wonder how Alicia is doing up North, have not noticed if she has been posting.  They really got hammered up there, the flooding hasn't even begun up there yet.

don't know that she's posted since the weather.  i know my husband had to go to bremerton this weekend.  was supposed to go on Thursday, but had to put it off until friday.  even then, I5 was closed with power lines across. 

that snow would have been ok if it had been dry.   it was so wet and heavy, then all the rain on top of it.  what a mess!

Well it has to be colder to get a dry snow.  There sure was a lot of water in it.  I have a friend up Tenino way and still have not heard from him.
