It took almost 2 years,
but I have finally seen a heavy, accumulating snow here in Bremerton.
There are a few more pics at the
link below if you are interested! This storm has really been something.
We actually got hit in two waves. The first came in on Thursday, when we
got a couple of inches. The thing is, this area is the type of place
that doesn't get snow all that often. As a result, the town doesn't have
the equipment to deal with snow effectively, and people don't know how
to drive in it to boot. Thus, a couple of inches might as well
have been a couple of feet up here! As a result, the bases around here
were shut down, and there were numerous traffic accidents, some
more serious than others.
The second wave came through
last night, and piled on to the first storm's accumulation which hadn't
melted yet on account of it staying quite cold in the mean time. So,
here we are, with about 8" of snow in a place that can't deal with 2. I
have duty tomorrow, and I'm seriously considering walking down to the
boat rather than driving! In the mean time though, I am going to hole up
here in the house.
I had originally planned on
getting out and about for a few games of
but with all of this weather those plans have obviously gone by the
wayside. Which is fine, as I have plenty of other things to keep me
busy. For example, I'm darn close to finishing the painting of my 40k
Imperial Guard army. I'm trying to get the models I have painted by
Christmas, in case Santa brings me something to add to my army ;). Also,
I am still working on a couple of games, such as Zak & Wiki and Strong
Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People.
Well, Christmas is rapidly
approaching. I have duty on Christmas Day, but I am flying out to
Indiana on Friday to spend the week after with Gwen and my family back
in Indiana. I will try to get another update in before the New Year, but
with how crazy things get, you can never tell.
