Snow: In March?

I kept hearing that there was snow in the forecast but didn’t believe it.  Living in Seattle all my life, I have learned as much I like Steve Pool  he sometimes lies. Okay maybe he doesn’t lie per say, but wrong predictions.  I didn’t think anything of snow as last weekend I was out panting bulbs in the backyard in the sunshine. 

Last night I am driving home and I see snowflakes starting to fall on my windshield. I kept glancing outside once I got home and it kept coming down.  Once it was all said and done around 11pm we had around 2″.  This morning I’m driving down off the hill we live on and I get to the bottom and nothing.  No snow; dry roads.  I think God just turned on the snow blower over my house so I would enjoy the 75+ degree in weather in Vegas this weekend. 🙂 

With that, I’ll be in warmth in a little over 7 hours.  I’m so looking forward to it.  I told Mr. Charming and myself that I would go without Internet for 3 full days.  It will be good for me.  I’ll let you all know how it went when I come back.

Dear Safeway:

The past two times I have been to your store, you haven’t had cucumbers . Yes, cucumbers. I don’t know why you haven’t, but I would like you to know that I miss them and hope they come back soon. If not, I might be forced to go to *gasp* Top Foods. Granted they don’t let me earn Alaska Miles but I might be forced to in order to get my cucumbers. Either that or plant some in my garden I don’t really have.


Why can’t you keep in stock cucumbers? I didn’t know they were that popular. I guess I learned something new today. I please ask the next time I come into your store you have a couple of cucumbers for me to choose from.

Thank you,
The Cucumber Monster
