The snow hasn't left yet... am I starting to sound like a broken record? Because I am beginning to feel like it. And while others love the snow, I'm not a fan. All this snow is becoming record breaking for the Portland area and is quietly ruining plans left and right.

Today, being Monday, was not an ordinary day. My supervisor called me last night to tell me that we were on a bit of a delay and could come in at 11am (you may ask, "why couldn't you have a snow day?" and my reply is "who knows..."). With all the snow that happened overnight, I was a little worried I wouldn't be able to make it out of my driveway. So I got up at 8 and shoveled the snow so I could get out of my driveway. Sam came out and helped too, even though he had a snow day. Then I got ready for work and headed out the door. There were only 4 people in my 10 people department, but work went quick and before I knew it it was 2pm and I was released to go home. I then braved it to Fred Meyers to pick up a few things for dinner and a box of popsicles for my friend Kristi because she had her wisdom teeth out today. When I got home, Sam and I leashed up the dogs and headed down the street to the Weathers home. I thought it would be nice to take the dogs on a walk, but they quickly froze and Sam picked them up and carried them the last part of the walk (see picture above) - it was pretty cute! We dropped the popsicles off and headed back home, quickly.

Now we're home, warm, and full of homemade potato soup (mmm, so good!). Who knows what we'll wake up to tomorrow, but hopefully we'll figure out what our plans for Christmas will be, because things look very unsure right now.
