This is one of my favorite times of year at the cabin – we are right on that threshold of getting a lot of snow and it is absolutely lovely when we do. Last night coming across the pass we followed the snow plow, so our travels were fairly easy. It was snowing like mad at the summit and everything looked like it was coated in a heavy layer of frosting.
I bought a new thermometer/weather system for the cabin because our old one wouldn’t read the outdoor temperatures. How the heck am I going to know if we are on the verge of snow or not?!? Right now it is 34 outside and the clouds are starting to roll in. The best part is the Winter Storm Watch that was just issued by NOAA:
”..SNOW WILL INCREASE SATURDAY NIGHT AND SUNDAY MORNING AS A STRONG LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM TRACKS ACROSS WASHINGTON. HEAVY SNOW ACCUMULATIONS WILL BE POSSIBLE ESPECIALLY ABOVE 2000 FEET. WHILE THE EXACT TRACK OF THE INCOMING STORM AND THE ASSOCIATED HEAVY SNOW ACCUMULATION ZONE REMAINS UNCERTAIN…WIDESPREAD SIGNIFICANT ACCUMULATIONS ARE LIKELY WITH THIS SYSTEM.”
They are predicting 4-8 inches and we are right around 2000 feet at the cabin, so it totally depends on whether or not we are high enough and if the system tracks over us. I bought Carter a snow suit and have the camera and video camera ready just in case!
In the meantime, I need to go start making homemade spaghetti sauce for dinner tonight. This recipe sounds amazing, I am excited to try it!! Happy Saturday!
