Let It Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow!

Just look at the winter wonderland we awoke to find this morning!

Can you see the Space Needle peeking through the storm?

The girls preschool was not cancelled, so I got to brave our STEEP hills covered with snow. I was talking to the girls about leaving their seatbelts securely fastened, because Mommy had never driven in snow before...As I cranked the car, guess what came blasting through my speakers, "Let it snow, Let it snow, Let it snow!" It took my nerves away :), and made the drive to school feel more like a sleigh ride.

Thanks, Aunt Taylor for our Sou'Westers. Since they came from England, Mommy thinks they are the coolest things ever. And she just realized they are on backwards... ;) They were perfect for our first snowy day (and Dapples refused to take hers off once she got to school). Be back soon with a more substantial post (or maybe Jeremiah, I'm trying to get him to come back this week).

I'm glad you were able to shake the nerves to drive in the snow. I am from a rural town in Alabama and when we have snow the roads are closed. No one knows how to drive in the snow! It rarely snows but we love it when it does.

Your first drive through the snow! And on the hills of Seattle? Nice work, Mama! Duluth is very similar to Seattle in so many ways, but I've been driving in snow my entire life. I'm sure you'll learn all the tricks quickly. I love your view!

as if the conditions would not get worse during the day==== the preschool administration should take the health and safety of the children into consideration ; whats a blizzard to them who drive with all weather tires----just another day in Seattle that could be spent at home why take unnecessary risks decided upon by others? bah humbug

Abby, A friend wrote that it took him 4 hours to get home! Be safe and watch out for other drivers! Enjoy the snow and the Holidays!
