what the weather looked like

While we were warm and eating my delicioso melted cheese for our anniversary, this is what it looked like outside:

This is the view from right outside the restaurant.  The snow was blowing fast! 

Here's a more romanticized view of the snow.  It reminds me of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe...

A close up a la Dan 

A lit up sculpture at the newest building in town.

Me outside of the parking stucture.  (I was very nervous about using the camera in the snow!)

Trucks chaining up before going over the pass.  I am NOT envious of those drivers. Yuck.

These pictures were all taken on Monday night.  It has pretty much been snowing non-stop since then.  Well, that's not exactly true...yesterday it was sunny all day and then started snowing again at night and throughout today. I'm going to post some videos Dan took of himself skiing today.  I, unfortunately, was stuck working with 3 year olds who don't know how to stop. :(  

However, on a bright(ish) note, the follow conversation between me and three year olds did transpire:

Me (in preparation for a game about bears):  Who knows what we find in nature?
Eli (3 yrs old, from Ethiopia): BUDDHA!!!
Me: Okayyyy...and what else do we find in nature?
Eli: Jesus Christ!
Nico (3 yrs old, from "his mom"):  G.I. Joe!!!

Eventually a kid guessed, "branches?"  I guess "nature" is too hard of a concept for 3 year olds.

    far more attention. I'll probably be returning to see more, thanks for the information!
