Spring in the Northwest

View from my patio, March 27, 2008.


Ooh, I bet you are all wishing you lived in Spokane right about now.

Oh yuck. I feel your pain, sister!

Bridget said...

OK. You win. That is the most depressing thing ever.

zeeny said...

You must have sent the storm to us because we woke up to several inches of snow this morning! I'll post pictures later. I was getting excited because we could finally see our grass through the snow until this morning!

Meg said...

Um no.

I thought it was bad with the icy rain here. Nevermind.

You win.

Lauren said...

That is kind of a bummer...but, I sure would love to live by you :)

Jenibelle said...

I am so strange, I love the quiet, serene beauty of snow. I LOVED driving through Idaho and Wyoming last week with all the snow. And before you say "yeah...you don't live in it..." I lived in Fairbanks Alaska for four years and I still love the snow. I'm wacky I know.

Hazen5 said...

Oh, that looks dreary and cold!! I think I am fine where I am at. San Diego's weather is great!

rubberbandgirl said...

Oh, we got it too, but it's nearly melted, until tomorrow, when it snows again.

Heidiram said...

I'll pass on the snow. But could I talk you out of your fence? I would love to have a fence in our backyard so my kids could be corralled in. Then of course they'd probably learn to jump over the fence to freedom and end up escaping my watchful eye anyway.

katie said...

umm, try Chicago. It snowed again yesterday. I feel your pain.

Lindsey said...

I am soooooooo glad I am in UTAH right now! It isn't that warm here either, but at least there is no snow on the ground! Just in time for SPRING BREAK! I hope you are going somewhere warm! If not, maybe you can drive to the tri-cities.

Lisa-Marie said...

I feel your pain. Yesterday was a snow day. In March. Hasn't anyone told Mother Nature it's SPRING? I'm sending her an e-mail.

AZ Karen said...

That's terrible. How depressing.

I guess it wouldn't be very nice to tell you that I've had to turn on my a/c for the last 3 nights. You can rub it in when it's 118 here in July, and you're able to still go outside and play (or more importantly, you can send your kids outside to play while you blog).

Lindsay said...

I do live here, yuck.

Nortorious said...

Whoa, that's not so Springy. Makes me cold just looking at all that snow.
My word verification was "walup" like what I want to do to my husband when he doesn't bring in the trash cans.

Natalie said...

I know you MUST be absolutely SICK of winter! It is really all so unimaginable to me which is why it looks so very, very lovely. I am sitting here sweating. Alot. Want to do a house swap vacation?

Meg said...

Oh great! Now it's snowing here...argh!

Lindsey said...

Make sure you visit TAI PAN when you come!!! 90th south just off the freeway. I am going at 8:30 a.m. Saturday morning. Really, it is an awesome store! Go visit!

Audry said...

That is horrible...and I was complaining that it was windy today...

Rochelleht said...

Oh soooo not! Did you see my blog today? Maybe you shouldn't. It would depress you.

Erin said...

Looks waaaayyyy too cold. It's supposed to be almost 70 here tomorrow. We've even busted out the tree swing for the year. :) Wanna visit?

Shally said...

NO fun. I bet your kids are going CRAZY being stuck inside so much!

HILLARY said...

maybe I don't want to live there! and I'm not feeling quite so depressed anymore! at least you can eat for 2 now!

Sally said...

Yikes. Maybe you guys will find a job here, so you can enjoy sunny springtime with us.

Heather said...

boo to the snow...AMEN to the Tai Pan visit.

word verification was nimpymo. I think I'm going to start using that word in real life.

Lauren said...

I'm thinking that my 85-90 degree weather is great! So sorry about your snow. There are definitely times that I miss the snow. We are both from Wyoming and moved here to AZ in October. It was our first Christmas EVER without snow. It was pretty sad for my 4 1/2 year old. She kept asking if she could build a snowman...:(

Ilene said...

No fair. You are taking off for the week. Guess who has to stay and live in it? Just so you know, it snowed again this morning and last night.

If the people weren't so nice in Spokane and it wasn't so pretty here (minus the snow), I wouldn't mind moving for a second. However, this ever-present snow is making the idea of a transition a teensy weensy bit easier.

andrea said...

you, me and lisa marie. i like the sound of that... don't forget katie...

what do we have in common? yeah. instead of sending our kids to school yesterday, we had them shovel the driveway. WAAAA...

Carie said...

I just tried to post a comment and apparently it didn't take. So, if you get this twice, sorry:

We are vacationing in Florida and it is in the 80's. It is divine.

Tristan said...

Oh that is no fun! No snow here, but it has been windy and chilly.

Meghann said...

I don't feel special leaving comments anymore. Why do you have to have so many dang friends? It's your guys fault because you're too dog-gone nice! Oh, and as for the snow- Merry Christmas!

Hollyween said...

It has snowed the last THREE DAYS HERE! I'm DYING!! I need the sunshine!

crystal said...

Hey! We woke up to the same kind of springtime morning today. Ugh.

TexasTwinsTwice said...

It looks COZY to me. Perhaps that's because we have blue skies about 95% of the time--gotta love AZ....until it's summertime!

brooke romney said...

You absolutely MUST move to AZ. That is just pitiful.

aric & jess said...

Still %*&#! snow, still *%$#& cold. Be glad you are gone.

You know I don't swear. It's just fun to pretend that I do...

Emily said...

Help me I am having issues with blurb. It keeps saying that the picture quality is to low. What do I do?

Adrianne said...

seriously, move to Arizona. But why does Brooke want you to move there too??

Christie said...

Wrong. Sick and wrong. Move immediately.

Kenny, Linsey, Caleb and Isaac said...

One Word - Yowzah! - okay so that's not actually a word, but that picture is making my brain freeze.

Kristy said...

I hate to say it, but it's sunny & in the 80's here in the south! I'll wish some spring your way! (Although get ready for the allergies & sinus junk...everything has its price!) :)

Motherhood for Dummies said...

oh and I thought we had it bad. We at least some half grass half dirty snow

Elizabeth Caldwell said...

you will miss the snow if you move.

dont move.

is "orgcnjvv" a word? If so, in what language?

AMY said...

All I can say is..... HONESTLY!

J'net said...

At least you DON'T feel like going outside and jogging or walking on the beach in your swim suit!
Good timing for a baby, with everything else up in the air?! This ONE new activity will be your focus, congrats!! Aloha!
