BABY IT'S COLD OUTSIDE

It's cold, cold here in Washington state.  I see on the news the folks up north of here (almost to the Canadian border) in the Bellingham, Mt Vernon area  got some snow last night.  But not here in what's called the South Sound .  However, in looking out my window I see that Jack frost came thru here last night.  My car is under cover but one of my neighbors has a couple vehicles that sit outside and they are both very frosty this morning.  The temperature on my porch outside my kitchen window is sitting right at 30 degrees.  But the sun is shining and I see blue sky and fluffy white clouds.   They are having a terrible time in the mountain passes.  So much snow.  Here's a link to a cam up at Snoqualmie Pass where Bob and I were just a few weeks ago.  They are skiing up there now.  http://www.summitatsnoqualmie.com/info/winter/cams.asp   This heavy snow fall has also been attributed to a fatal accident on the pass.  A snow laden fir tree fell across the highway and across the front of a pick up carrying four men.  The two men in  the front of the truck were killed.  A freak accident that had they left a few minutes earlier or later might night have happened.  My heart goes out to their family and friends. http://www.komotv.com/news/4736241.html

Bob of course is basking in the sun and warm temperatures down in Pasadena, California.  He called last night and was telling me that he went out to the auto auction with his son in law (he's an auto wholesaler) and it was like 65 degrees which Bob thought was fine.  All the workers out there had jackets on and were hopping around, rubbing their hands together like they were freezing to death.  Meanwhile Bob was in jeans and a regular short sleeved cotton shirt and they were looking at him like he was crazy. 

Well, I'm going to get off here and get some breakfast.  Barbara called last night and wants to goto a movie this afternoon.  I told her that would be fine unless Jim needs me for some reason.   So, I'm going to eat, shower and get another load of laundry done this morning to I don't feel guilty about sitting in the theater for a couple hours this afternoon.  Sandra...you'll be happy to know the ironing is piling up here.  So Sunday afternoon I'll be standing behind my ironing board like you do most Sunday's.  I even brought out all my holiday work blouses, so they will need to be run thru the wash and then ironed.   I washed them before I put them away but that was 9 months ago so they need to be laundered again. 

Have a wonderful Saturday, until next time,

Have fun at the movie, the sun is shining here now.  But the ironing sounds yucky.
It's a great weekend for a movie, but Bob is lucky to be where it is 65.  Joni

It is true!  When it's 65 here in So. Calif. we are bundled up.  Thanks for mentioning the ironing.  I need to get into my ironing basket and see what's in there.  I imagine it's pretty full.  Perhaps I'll be standing behind my ironing board tomorrow morning, too.
Hugs,  Kathy

Just wanted to drop by and visit; thanks for stopping by my journal.  We're on opposite sides of the country; I'm in North Carolina.  I've been to the west coast a few times but never as far north as Washington state.  I wouldn't know what to do with snow; when we have one inch of snow, everything and everyone shuts down.  Thankfully, we rarely have snow!--Sheria

Here I sit in Winder Ga, where the high was in the low 70's today.  Man I am about to burn up.  I'm ready to get home where it is  about 10 degrees cooler...but still much warmer than your neck of the woods.
