Checking in after being missing for a while. The PNW is expecting a whopper snow storm this afternoon, which always shuts us completely down. The de-icing trucks have been coating the roads for a couple of days. It is nice to have them proactive. We stocked up on supplies yesterday, and are ready to hunker down. Right now it is raining softly and 36 degrees. My hourly forecast says snow is supposed to start about 4PM. It will be a weekend of watching TV and sewing. Stay safe, everyone!
