So we arrived in Richland, WA on December 22nd, 2016. It was after a LONG 5 day drive with a u-haul, 2 kids and 2 dogs in crazy winter winds and weather. But we arrived and had a nice quiet Christmas with family here in our empty house. Then after Christmas day, we got all our household goods and I began the long process of finding “spots” to put things in our downsized home. Then the Snowmaggeddon hit! People kept saying to me, “Its never like this!” or “Enjoy it while you can it will melt soon!” But little did they or I know that this snow would go on for weeks. Just when we’d have enough sun/warmth for it to start melting, we were hit with another wave and schools were closed again! For this momma who was looking forward to having her kids in school for the first time in 2.5 years…not cool!
But we survived right (or are surviving) and after I regained my sanity through some coffee and some cookie baking, I went outside to take some photos of this historic snow. And as the sun comes out today, I am willing to even look at them and post a few. My top 5 favorites from the first snowfall:
I’m going to keep posting some more photos that I’ve taken here over the next few days. Follow my page to see what I shot next and leave me a comment and let me know how you survived the LONG hours stuck at home in the wintry weather! -Cheers!
