Today I Feel Like I Woke Up In Oz.

As many of you are aware, Washington has been hit this last week with a HUGE snow/ice/wind storm (which seemed to have lasted the whole week)! We were very fortunate not to have lost power or had a tree land on our home, though we have several close calls. It is amazing to me how much damage weather can cause. Here are some photos in front of our house of the damage:

As you can see it's been a close call! I am so thankful for our friends up here helping us out including our home teacher Travis! Luckily the storm is over and clean up is being. One thing I'm not liking is living in a place that we can't clear away the branches ourselves (which means it will be here a few days). This has been a very interesting experience; not leaving home because impassable roads, falling branches, falling ice chunks & even if you got out where would you go with the power out to over 250,000 people around you?
But with all the bad there has been good. My hubby was home pretty much all week. We found Little Miss has her first tooth and she is crawling! It has been fun watching movies and making dinner together as a family.
Now with hubby back to work it seems like last week was surreal except when I look outside and then I feel like I am in the land of Oz.
