The storm

Well we are surviving the winter storm just fine over here! Thankfully no power outages. Jared did have a lovely drive home from work last night. It took him 4 hours, 40 minutes, and he was in one minor accident (not his fault - someone else lost control of their car and hit him). What a commute.

Anthony and I are having a great time playing in the snow. Jared is working from home today, so hopefully he'll be able to join us later for the winter fun.

And here is my poor brother:
Josh works downtown as a manager at starbucks. He got off at 6, walked around for 1.5 hours trying to find a bus, finally got on one only to go three blocks in thirty minutes. So he decided to get off and walk home. The walk to his place in West Seattle is just under five miles. So my bad-ass brother basically walked around (minus the 30 minutes he was on the bus) from 6 to 10 when he finally got home. All he had were gloves and a jacket, so he wrapped his apron around his face to shield himself from the wind as he was walking over the West Seattle Bridge. Needless to say, he said it was pretty cold out and he almost gave up a few times. But it was faster than taking the bus for sure.

My mom was in town this weekend and left at just the right time yesterday morning! If she'd stayed any longer she would have been stuck over here for who knows how long. And the pass was closed on and off yesterday - she made it through somehow!
