Happy Birthday Joel!

Today is Joel's birthday. Unfortunately, it snowed in Seattle last night, and while I love snow - this silly city doesn't know how to handle it. The road to our house is a large hill which just becomes a sheet of ice when it we were stranded at our house all day and Joel didn't get the birthday we had planned. We were planning to grab lunch at Red Robin (using the Birthday club coupon for a free burger), head to Best Buy and Sears to pick out a camera (my b-day gift to Joel), and then stop by the store for clams for his birthday dinner.

We worked on the house most of the day yesterday - I was painting the office and Joel was prepping the plumbing for our bathroom remodel. We turned on the news last night and it was mentioning snow accumulating downtown. Since we live 10 minutes from downtown, we opened our curtain and sure enough, saw this accumulation of snow at 11:00 last night - it hadn't even started when we had looked at 9:00pm.

Speaking of this city that doesn't know how to handle snow - since we can't get our cars down the hill, I still need to figure out how to get to work 30 miles away tomorrow....maybe I'll just walk to the bus stop and head to the office downtown (10 minutes away) instead.

I hope everyone had a great weekend. Mine was way too short!
