Hooray for Snow Days

hello little snowflake

Been laying low lately because of a freak snow storm that's pretty much paralyzed Portland and the Northwest. It's been a lot of fun. See for yourself:

If you can't view it here, you can always check out the YouTube version. Same thing, lesser quality.

Of course, this was about a week ago when it was all fun & games. Now that we've been hammered (pummeled?) with over 10 inches of snow, cabin fever has kicked into high gear. Fun!

the kids they were sorta excited


After it's all said and done, I'm happy to report a couple of firsts for myself: 1. First time shoveling snow. 2. First time experiencing a white Christmas (assuming that the snow will stick around for Thursday, and so far, all signs point to yes).

I've got some vintage ephemera scans to share with you all, but first I need to stir up a fire in the hearth. It's a good thing.


  1. I've shoveled so much snow in my life I don't want to see another ice chipper again.

    Enjoy your holidays!!

  2. You've gotta love the climb back up the hill after you sled down for a whole 10 seconds!

    Happy Holidays!

  3. A first for me too; My first time sorta meeting someone (in adult form anyhow) who's first time it was shoveling snow! Wow! (I'm from Alaska)
