Yeah, when I was younger we would hope for a white Christmas, as it was always cold enough for it. But the last couple of years, we only pray that it doesn't rain too hard and become a sloppy mud-brown Christmas *sigh* However, we are supposed to get a bit of a storm this weekend....we shall see.
So far it has only snowed twice. Once was a good inch or so, washed away an hour later by rain. The other were snowflakes so small you could barely see them. Otherwise it's just been cold. I wish it would snow for Mazee's sake, she loves it. Where I live we are lucky if we get three days of snowfall, with the rest of the week lasting, (stale) snow. Once a year, too.

Otherwise, all the schools up by Seattle are closed due to flooding.

Below is that first day!
Here are some pictures near Centralia of the floods that I took on the way home from Portland
Are those the floods in Washington? Did you have to detour I-5 (if you even went in that direction), because it was under five feet of water!
Luckily we made it close to home before they put up the detours. I stayed at my brothers house that night because he had a generator and a Wii :D. One of the resturaunts got swept away by a mudslide so we had to take a (creepy) detour around that. If we had left Portland later we would have had to go to Eastern Washington and then back to Western Washington to get home.
Yea, luckily none are near my area.
I am so greatful that there weren't any floods here, although here on the coast there were some really huge wind gusts.(Or so I've heard)
Reportedly hurricane force, I think.
Yeah, a tree fell on our neighbors trailer and the weird thing is is that in the last storm we had uor fence blew down and in this one we only lost a piece of wood from it even though this one was much stronger.
We have had some bad storms to. Last year school was closed, and there were trees down everywhere. Our house was the one of the only houses with power for some reason. No internet or T.V though :(
