spending a christmas and new year in weather that is around 78 degrees is quite a change for us from the Pacific NW! our first home on whidbey island brought a light coating of snow last year. we were thrilled to see the white coating and J thought for sure we would find snow around Baker to snow shoe. we threw on warm clothes, brushed our chops and grabbed our snow shoes and headed to Baker. the closer we got the more snow we found but not nearly enough for snow shoeing. we had a good laugh. what a feeling though to wake up to even a light dusting of snow in your yard. even if it looks like this!
