The Big Snow Coming Down at Friend's Houses

Today, this is what Charlotte woke up to in Snohomish, WA. A LOT of snow!! She even took a snow day to 'work at home' because there was so much snow.

Charlotte's front yard.

Lots and lots of snow. Which brings a interesting and unknown fact to light -- shall we say. On the side, in the way of a small business, Charlotte rents space to undersized alien ships during their hibernation periods.

She's developed quite a reputation as a quiet and safe harborage for these types of visitors. And even provides an occasional smudge ceremony (preformed by the local raccoon) to keep the ships in positive energy.

Hibernating Alien Ships.

Lobo is the crack security team, always on guard concerning his brood of sleeping pods.

And what's this??? A well known pod invading Lobo territory from the far reaches of the solar system? Perhaps a glowing visitor from the dark side of the Moon?

"Mom, what's this orange thing?"

"Mom, come quick. There is a glowing orange orb that I must show you before it takes off."

So, while Lobo defends a universally favorite alien RV Bed and Breakfast, known far and wide as the only place to really enjoy a good nap and then, upon awakening, world famous, award winning (really) Iowa Corn Chili (long story) while waiting for those engines to warm up, some friends about 30 minutes away are also dealing with some BIG snow.

Over at Dean and Anne's in Granite Falls, WA, my peoples (minus the aliens) have also been playing and working in big snow for a few days.

Baby, Luna's brother, out for a snow run next to the barn.

Lots and lots of snow at the farm. Did I say lots and lots? Dean has many more pictures at his blog, Granite Falls Thoroughbreds. Go visit, enjoy all the snow pictures, and drop them a note. You can even tell them how much you love Luna!! (Dean and Anne gave me Luna.)

My most favorite Cedar Tree in the world!

A river runs through it.

While I sure don't think I would like to drive in any of this, it sure is pretty to look at. This river is so much a part of the life on the farm. Big and beautiful and full of life no matter what season.

As this day ended, I would have liked to have known what Anne made for dinner this Thursday evening. She's a GREAT cook and I'm sure it was warm and extra good!

Great snow pictures... I've got some too. I took advantage of the snow and got out of the house on Thursday.
