My last post was about our trip to Washington to go sledding. Who knew that we'd see so much snow here at home the last few weeks? Last year we only got a VERY light dusting of snow that didn't even last a day! Last Wednesday we ended up getting several inches of snow. It also managed to get down to 15 degrees for a few nights, so it was pretty cold. Ayden and Rylee enjoyed being able to get out and play in it.
By Friday, most of the snow had melted. However, it came back on Saturday with a vengeance! Not just snow this time though. First, we had several hours of freezing rain that left a good layer of ice as a base layer. Then it snowed about 3 inches, followed by more freezing rain! We had plans to celebrate a late Christmas with my family that afternoon and then had a wedding to go to that night. We stayed home instead and spent another day in the snow.

|Then they got pulled in the wagon, which didn't work too well.|
|They attempted to pull each other.|
|And Rylee ate lots more "snow ice."|
By yesterday, everything was just one thick layer of ice! There was more freezing rain in the morning. By afternoon it was just regular rain, but that just made the roads a skating rink.
|Can you see how icy it was?|
Now we are expecting a full day of rain tomorrow and a 40 degree temp, so nobody will be surprised if there's some flooding. Fickle weather anyway...
