Today we woke to snow.  No school for one, late start for the other child.  My volunteering for the day was scratched, of course. I didn’t take any pictures today — I think there will be snow again this year.  The way the weather has been, I rather expect more like this, more regularly than […]

Yep. Rainiest Month, EVER!

Ever, ever, ever — since they started keeping records in Washington state NO month has has more precipitation than this one. It’s almost over, but it’s still raining. So what?
