Yakima, Weather, and Nothing

Even though there's not a lot going on, I suppose I need to write something. I was recently told that someone "lives" for reading my blogs. So, to my many fans...

I'm sorry to say that there's not a lot going on right now. I spent a couple of days in Yakima the end of January for work. Yakima is about a 2.25 hour drive from Seattle, but because of the snow in the mountains, we took a flight that took about 35 minutes. In the summer and fall Yakima apparently has things to do. There are lots of wineries and hundreds of fruit stands/orchards. But, in winter, Yakima is very boring. I didn't even take any pictures.

I'm sure you've heard about the copious amount of snow in the Northwest the past couple of weeks. The mountains close to us have received lots and lots of snow. And in Puget Sound there were a couple of days with some heavyish snowfall (by heavy I mean it snowed enough that snow was on the ground for a few hours). One day my vanpool chose to wait two hours to go to work to wait for the roads to get better. But the snow usually turns to rain by the afternoon and it all melts off in the afternoon.

That's about it for me. I'm actually starting to get really busy at work. Which makes the work day go a lot faster and makes me feel very productive. I've got several trips scheduled for March. I get to go back to the very exciting Yakima a couple of times. One trip is overnight, and one trip is the type where I fly there in the morning and fly home at night. And I will be spending four whole days in Spokane again as well. (In the meantime, my sister's business trips in the next few months include San Antonio and the Dominican Republic. Spokane and Yakima is just as exciting. Right?)
