A Very Snowy Anniversary!

Well Cliff and I got a unique anniversary present today. We both got the day off!! Cliff tried to go into work but wasn't able to make it. I called my employer this morning and she told me to not even think about coming in. This was good news to me because it too me 2 and a half hours to drive 7 miles home from work yesturday. So we are taking it easy and enjoying the time together. Let's just hope I don't go into labor considering there is no way to make it into the hospital and they have cut off emergency services to the hospital. Here is a report I found on the internet about our last 24 hour snowfall and some pics and video of the puppy getting her first Winter Washington snowfall. The second pic is of our backyard and the third pic is our front yard. The red truck, that we are borrowing, cliff was able to dig out this morning to get us some groceries, but if you can make it out, there is another car parked right behind the truck. You can't even see it! That car belongs to our temporary roommate Dave. He has been with us since a week before Thanksgiving. I hope he doesn't plan on going anywhere today:)
