ENOUGH winter!

OK, I live on the Washington coast and snow is a novelty here.  The east side of our county (where I work) always gets more snow than us, and I’m fine with that.  I love the snow because we get it for a day or two and it’s gone.  Someone forgot to tell the snow to GO AWAY!!!

Monday morning, 5 minutes from work (it takes over an hour when the weather is bad) I get a call from my knitting buddy and co-worker Patty.  She says “So whatcha doin?”  I think this is a trick question and wonder what’s up.  When I saw it was her calling I thought she was calling to tell me that I could park in her parking space (because her nice husband has been driving her to work this past week).  Wrong, and wronger… she is calling to tell me that all the county offices are CLOSED!  I thought she was joking.  But sure enough when I got to work there was no where to park because of all the snow.  I just pulled up in front and when I came to a stop because of the snow, I parked.  When I got inside I found my boss (the county Auditor) with a big smile on his face.  He didn’t know either!

So anyway, I worked until about noon and then took these pictures.

For some unknown reason, someone thought it would be a good idea to pile the snow in front of the Montesano Cop Shop.  They moved the snow today while we watched… because it’s fun to watch men working – right?   Men working – HA Ha HA Ha HA Ha!

OK, now back at home the ducks are having fun too!

Duck tracks!
