You are most welcome Trish. We have the snow NOW, and it is just starting to stick on the grass...the road won't be far behind. We here in the Lower Mainland of BC do not handle snow much better than Seattle. Well, looks like I am back to cane and heavy shoes for the weekend. And driving "lessons" are put off once more. But at least my dogs are happy!

In the last two hours it has snowed, rained, snowed, rained and snowed again. There is a little skiff on the grass but not the roads or vehicles. I don't think it is doing anything right now, except trying to make up its mind. I have heard of 6 cancellations already of school and community events. If I was back on the prairies it would take two feet in an hour to close anything LOL!!

It's dark here. LOL Actually, it's cooling off and tomorrow may bring cooler weather and the chance of some precipitation, probably sunday night. At least we hope so. Paradise can become rather boring, if not for the odd earthquake or two.

Windy and 46 degrees F. It is supposed to snow this weekend. To give an idea of how little snow we have had the picture below was taken on Wednesday (12/10/08). The elevation of that picture is over 7,000 feet. By now there should be at least 2-3 feet or more at a minimum.
