long week • • • •

Olympia January 16 - 22...........
it has been a long week....


started out as a storm warning .. it wasn't too cold 
.. then it started to snow 

... A LoT!


a mess!!! 


power outages
schools closed


now we are dealing with clean up......



poor birdies .......



we are thankful 
although many had inconveniences 

• no one was seriously hurt

• it is amazing how the community
 came together to help each other

• you learn to value the simple things


The ability to simplify means 
to eliminate the unnecessary
so that the necessary may speak.
Hans Hofmann

What an incredible storm! We had those when I was living in the Midwest...sometimes school would be closed for weeks. Great how the community comes together in times of need. :-)

You guys have had a rough time over there for sure! My parents lost a big maple tree in their front yard-it just split right down the middle! Glad you are ok. Stay warm and safe, and think of spring Lisa:)

Wow! This really does look like a mess, and very cold. I know you'll be happy when things are back to normal.
It's amazing how weather stuff can remind you to appreciate the little things ... like heat and running water. So glad it was just inconveniences. Y'all take care!

Wow, it looks dramatic! We've had such a lowkey winter in Boston, hardly any snow at all. Glad you're OK! ANd it's nice that everyone came together.

Fantastic photos - as usual!

What we got out here wasn't nearly as bad - of course, there are way less trees!
Glad that you didn't get hurt - makes for an adventure :)
