As allot of you have probably been seeing on the news...Seattle and all of the surrounding areas have been getting the snow piled on pretty thick. My family and I live in Issaquah, which is north east of Seattle. We have been getting a ton of snow this whole week, and yesterday we ended up with rain, which then froze causing a major power outage for thousands of residents including us. Luckily the outage only lasted about 13 hours, and we have a gas fireplace that will ignite with the use of batteries. So we were able to keep warm to wait this storm out. While snow is not my favorite thing in the World, it sure is pretty.
