It is now 2009 and hopefully everyone's new year is off to a good start. Let 2009 be a better year than 2008!
I called my step-dad in Spokane, Washington on Christmas Day via Skype and we talked about the weather -- I mentioned the two feet of snow we got in our local mountains a couple weeks ago (see blog post below) and what fun we had playing in it. While we were talking, my step-sister, Yelena, went outside and filmed the area around their front and backyards that is covered in snow and then emailed it to me -- unbelievable! The snow in the video is nearly four feet high, while the berm created by the snow plows is nearly seven feet high!
I called them again on New Year's Eve and they said they had received even more snow than what was in the video -- at least one and a half to two feet more! Check out the video below from Christmas Day:
