And it continues…

So we are on day four of snowpocalypse of 2012 and I am in Starbucks writing this b/c our cable/internet went down yesterday about 4pm. Sadness.

We went into a slight panic and then remembered that we could still watch DVD’s since the power wasn’t out. WHEW! We didn’t have to sit and stare awkwardly at each other around the candle light and “bond”.

In all seriousness though, it was kind of nice to be completely disconnected for an evening, well…and most of today and for who knows how long.  We are very thankful that our power didn’t go out all together b/c we know for so many people around the area it had. The lights flickered about a million times throughout the day and gave me heart palpitations every time, but we are still in business and hoping to stay that way.

Here are a couple shots of what we are dealing with.

everything was frozen solid yesterday. The poor trees were hanging down so far b/c of the weight of the ice.

the car was frozen solid!

Today it has warmed up to a balmy 45 degrees and has rained some which is thankfully melting a lot of the ice and some of the snow. We sat this morning and listened to the trees in our neighborhood. The ice and snow crashing down and breaking branches. It was surreal. On our way to Starbucks we saw sooo many trees hanging in the streets under the weight of the ice and cables and power lines all over the roads as well. Its a freezing cold HOT mess.

I have a lot more pics to share, but cell phone service is pretty spotty as well so haven’t been able to upload anything.

I am sitting here seriously considering booking a trip to Hawaii. Seriously, I’m about to click “purchase”.

I NEED this….

Where do you wish you were right now?

  1. Those pictures are gorgeous, if it wasn’t for the fact that you have to LIVE in that ice and cold!! Where is it that you live?? We got snow here in Ohio, but not ice like that!

    And to answer your question, I wish I was back in Costa Rica, at the resort we stayed at for our honeymoon. That would be nice. 😉

    • We are in a suburb of Seattle. We are not built for this type of weather. It doesn’t happen often but when it does….it kind of shuts the whole area down!
      Costa Rica sounds awesome. We went to Jamaica for our honeymoon and although I loved it I want to go somewhere new next time (next trip, not honeymoon) to explore!! 🙂

  2. The ice on your car is insane!! MA has actually been mild this winter, but last year we had a record amount of snow…I had lots of fun with my non 4 wheel drive vehicle 🙂
    And I’m with Kristen–Costa Rica would about make my year right now!
