scenes from snowlocked tacoma

the view from the lunchroom...18th floor in the wells fargo plaza. soft, dry snow that blew from the tops of the buildings all day.

a street, in downtown. 6:30 in the morning. absolutely quiet and peaceful.

viper and one of our neighbor dogs...

viper, on a tear when she thought i was leaving without her. ;)

paige, in the sweet scarf her mom knitted for her. here's hoping liz will teach me how to make these. they are unbelievably cool. the snow reflected everything - all kinds of catchlights and colors in their eyes. with the kids, i tested out my new lens (affectionately titled "the beast" as it's bigger than my dog). for those on paiger's pic below!
and finally, a shot of rich as he's finishing up shoveling the sidewalk along our street. if you want to know how really cool he should read what i said about him a few weeks back in the news tribune...

he'll love this: click on his backside, and you can read the article!! :)

Wow. How is the driving?

One time in college (at UPS), it snowed about a 1/4 inch and my Kent-born-and-raised roommate forced me (a Minnesota native) to drive her around.

i wouldn't know - my papa (born and bred in iowa) picks me up every morning for work!
