The Super StormTroopers

No, this is not a post about Star Wars. Instead, it’s a shout out to all of our friends in the east who, probably as I type this, are once again getting pounded with snow. As screwy as this winter has been and as much as I’m longing for spring, we really have no right to complain.

They, however, do.

I’ve been trying to keep up with everyone’s exploits and personal versions of the Winter Olympics, but I’ll admit, I’m way behind. I have been keeping tabs on a few folks in and around the Capitol though to see how they have weathered the storms. (That’s storms, plural.) I have to say they’ve done remarkably well. I know I wouldn’t hold up so good under similar circumstances.

Jen and her dogs at Dogs and Jen found themselves in temporary housing for part of the storm. Luckily, there was shelter very close to home in the form of a Hyatt. Now that’s resourceful!
Vicki at NotSoSAHM not only managed to dine by dark – while keeping two young girls and two very confused cats in check – she even had to venture out to get her hubby to work. (Pure, solid bravery that.)

And poor Benny at D.C. Rowhouse. She just wanted to venture out for groceries but instead spent an hour helping to free a trapped pick-up in her path. My kind of neighbor!

Lucky for us, we aren’t dealing with snow beyond the few inches on the ground or an occasional flurry. Instead, it’s just plain old cold. We’re supposed to warm gradually during the next few days, so here’s hoping.

Wherever you are and however you’re managing to endure Snowpocalypse, here’s hoping that you’re safe and warm. Vancouver’s got NOTHING on all of you!

I can't believe everyone is getting so much snow. I a little jealous... (I'll pay for that one, I'm sure).

Wishing all of those hit by the snow safety!

Thanks for thinking of us! There's a small blizzard outside right now. I'm getting ready to do an update post. My MIL is supposed to fly in tomorrow at 5pm. Right now the airport is closed. Will they dig out?!
