Snow, Snow, Snow

Hey kiddies, I know that many of you live in perpetual cold weather climates much of the winter. But we don't. Rain, oh yeah...we get the rain. But rarely do we have truly winter weather. Starting today, it's not going to be above freezing for the entire next week....which is really odd for us here in Portland. It's 30mph winds, blowing snow, and icy roads. Check out our local KGW Channel 8 website and our local weather forecast. If I were of the gay persuasion, you may even find me breaking out in a happy-go-lucky version of SNOW from the movie White Christmas. Schools are closed for tomorrow along with many businesses. We edged our way down the hill to the gym earlier....thinking we should keep right on with our business of staying healthy.

On the way home, we did the unhealthy and stopped at one of our favorite Chinese joints, The Ambassador. We walked in the door in our gym sweats and everyone was dressed up in dresses and suits and ties -- we'd obviously crashed some party! It was The Ambassador's annual Christmas party for it's employees and customers. I dove into a steaming fresh plate of kung pao veggies. And we both slurped down a hot chocolate with peppermint schnapps (even though we're not over 21 yet...shh). What a great place. And the drinking isn't over yet....as soon as I hit "publish post" on this little diddy, I'm off to incorporate some rum into hot low-fat eggnog (honey doesn't know about that quite yet but I'm sure he won't object).

And we're less than two weeks from our week-long visit to see some of the Northeast's hottest guys. I met them back in October but my honey has not....he's getting nervous! They invited us out for New Year's and we gladly accepted. And don't forget Sean's Undie Monday tomorrow!

Happy holiday week ahead to everyone. Email me! Tell me something hot to keep these cold days warm and toasty! Send me a picture that will turn a cold day into a hot night!

I too am adding some peppermint schnapps to the cocoa to help the mood and warm the toes.

I'm more of the eggnog and rum persuasion myself. As a matter of fact, I started drinking that about 9 this morning. And yes, I had a pretty good morning.

My suggestion for keeping warm when it's cold and snowy outside: Take all you clothes off, crawl under the covers, and invite your husband to do the same. I trust you to figure it out from there.

As unusual as your very cold weather is, we are expecting high temps this week of 70 degrees for a few days. That's unusually warm for us this time of year.

You'll know cold when you get to Albany [sinister laugh].

Wayne said...

Well, you sure aren't going to get any sympathy from me! I'd send you all our snow if I could!

You had me when you walked in the door wearing gym sweats. :)
You rarely get snow? I need a lesson in geography or atleast meteorology.

Lemuel said...

You're not over 21 yet?!

"Mom...!!!!!"

*grin*

Oh my goodness the kids kept running to the front door all night long to see if it was snowing yet! About 8pm we got 5 minutes of snow and they squealed with delight! Why so much joy over the winder wonderland? Because they got to miss school today of course! (I can't believe they cancel school with a light dusting of snow on the ground).

Laurie said...

80 and today it's in the 20's..

I would so be sending that photo - but my mac is off at the mac hospital, having it's innards removed and put back in again.

I hope they do a nice job....

You need snow for a White Christmas. Although you may be in store for quite a bit more in Albany if it's anything like Buffalo. But have a fantabulous time there regardless!

i remember once living in tualatin up on a hill, and it snowed. i drove a stealth sports car at the time. i got mad at my ex, (yes, i was drinking at the time), and took off in my hot rod. he warned me not to go out in the snow. i got about a block, changed my humble mind, and couldn't get the car back up the hill. i jumped out and asked him to "please" (?) park the car. ah, those oregon once-a-year snowstorms.
