You may have heard this?
"It rains nine months of the year in Seattle."
That is a quote from Sleepless in Seattle.
The local weather channels actually provide us with charts to let us know "The Odds It Will Rain on Any Given Day."
According to the National Climate Data Center (they give you the odds of a white Christmas in most major US cities), Seattle has a 7% chance of having one inch of snow for Christmas.
The last time we had snow around here on Christmas day? 1990 (that was about an inch), and before that it was 1965.
This year? Croly hap! We had OVER a foot at my house!!
There is Thing One kickin' it in the Christmas spirit.
Thing Two received Zoo Tycoon from his brother who was DYING for this game...and who has already played it more than Thing Two...yes, we've had to have THAT talk now too.Here is Mr. Logo entertaining himself with the packaging from one of his gifts. The roads, going over the river and through the woods, were pretty ugly in spots. The weather this week is predicted to go into the 40s for a while and so now there are going to be flood watches all over the place.
I'm of two minds about all this snow. I mean, parts of it are great! It is kinda pretty, sledding and whatnot are certainly fun, but, uh, its been TWO FREAKING WEEKS.
I am officially done.
