|The extent of our snow this morning|
|Ryan and John, already sore from one day of powder skiing at Stevens Pass|
Even though we've hardly had any snow in Seattle proper, some neighboring counties have gotten hammered. I've heard reports of between 6 and 12 inches in some places. It is pretty hard to image that places within 20 minutes of where we live have so much snow right now! I understand the patterns of where snow fell today have to do with the precipitation shadow of the Olympic mountains. I've been fascinated reading this weather blog.

Ryan and John left on their road trip today. They made it over Snoqualmie pass just fine today with the help of chains. It is cold out in Idaho, but I am sure they are going to have great skiing conditions tomorrow in Sand Point!
