Good Morning & Happy Friday!

Another week has just flown by and last night's Pot Luck was in honor of Connie's Birthday. We won't mention how old the dear lady is because that's not done is polite society! Not that the Thursday night group is Polite Society but we're working on it. lol

I watched the Olympics after they all left to continue the party at Dax's (a local pub). The Snow Board competition was great. Since it's the first time in the Olympic repertoire, I think they did very well. The Canadian's seem to be dominating the event but there's still time before the finals on Saturday.

Then came the Ladies Down Hill Moguls. Which looks to me to be an exercise in bouncing and speed on skis. I should think they'd have an upset tummy by the time they get down the hill and then they have to do tricks in the air and land on the skis again and get more bouncing done before they get to the bottom.

There was a little of the Team Figure Skating which is always fun to watch. Although doing it a a team instead of individual event only is also new this year.  The same people get to compete again for themselves beside adding their points to a team event. It's going to make the next 2 weeks very interesting which is great since the Hollywood writers haven't come up with much new in last few years except much mayhem and alien intrusion.

Here are a couple of the pictures I've done with some new kits by Anna Jolanta. She is good and I enjoy the colors and themes she is doing. I'm pretty sure this is Anna's Blog:

And then there is the weather. I'm from Pennsylvania, (at least the first 20 years of my life) so I'm used to what is going on on the East Coast just not as bad as it has been this year. Growing up in the NW corner of Pennsylvania made sure we had plenty of snow, some times starting on Halloween and staying until mid March. I learned how to drive a stick shift in that much snow. Yesterday was the first snow here in the Mid Columbia Basin except for some fog that got too cold and looked like snow. Here's a picture from last night and this morning. We are expecting some more snow today in the evening hours they say.
i estimate 2 to 3 inches. That's not very much by some standards but for the people here in the desert of SW Washington State, it's a lot. There were accidents all over the place last night.
