Snow in March


I love snow, driving over the icy hill with thrill, and beautiful scenery when snowing. However, this year’s winter season is “Too-Much”..ย  ๐Ÿ™‚ Well, let’s say this snow is great because I can test the new snow shovel..

Buying a new Snow Shovel after the Snow Storm is Gone is…


same as Barn Mending After Horse Is Stolen.. or fixing the barn after losing the cow in Korean..ย  well at least, at last night, I cleaned up the snow on my deck with this new one..

2019 Seattle Snowpocalypse 2.0


Big lesson learned after 2nd winter snow storm in one week: Never say “This winter has been warm with less rains and no snow” ๐Ÿ™‚ Usual 15-20 min drive back to home became 4 hour scramble with ad-hoc detouring, endless wait, and 1st gear uphill driving..

Seattle Snowmageddon 2017


With the scenery of the morning – I didn’t even changed the clothes – staying pajama for whole day to work at home for Snowday celebration… 15+ inches of snow in one day and itย finallyย ended around 4PM today after nearly 24 hours of endless snowing..

No schools today and late school tomorrow, but as City of Bellevue only does the clean up on major streets, had to use bucket to clean up the drive wayย to make the cars at least drivable.. ๐Ÿ™‚ Maybe the most snow in Seattle after 2008 winter since I settled down in this town.
