snow today gone tomorrow, maybe not

The weather around here can be unpredictable, we are surrounded by mountains on all sides, Mt Rainier to the south, Mt Vernon and the Cascades to the south, Mt baker to the east and the Olympics to the west, the you throw Puget sound in the middle of it all and fun stuff happens.
so I have gotten used to rain, wind, rain, sun, rain, rain, Squirrel!
(just seeing if you were paying attention!)

snow pellets!
wednsday I got up, looked out the window on to a typical gloomy overcast day, wandered to do my business, got a cup of coffee, turned around to look out the window again to find it had snowed an inch of snow pellets! DUDE!
it all melted by noon, no biggie.

Thursday it snowed till noon and melted by 3 so I went out to get some groceries, I was 45 minutes in the store. by the time I got back to the car there was a light dusting on the ground. by the time I got up the hill I couldn't see the lights of the oncoming traffic! eek!
poor rhodies out my front window

 still fluffing
Not that I'm complaining, mind, I know people have been getting socked this winter with the white stuff but I'm at the top of  2 mile long, 450' hill and just an inch or two louses things up around here so bad, you'd think it was Armageddon! and today we got temps in the teens, which turns the roads into ice rinks. with more snow predicted for this afternoon.
I'm making suppa tuscana!

Me thinks it's time for a roaring fire, hot tea and lots of sewing! he,he!
I like this!
