|My daughter, Tracey moved up to Spokane, WA. (which is
about 100 miles from the Canadian border) in the
summer of 2006 to attend culinary school but had no idea what she would
be in for once winter arrived. The first full season that she was their
was a nice break from all the fast pace rat race that she was use to in
So. Ca. and she was able to experience having four seasons of weather
too (something she's not use to). Now that she's in her second year of
school and working (in the kitchen of a restaurant), she's getting very
close to finishing up her final year in college.
Tracey told me that once she finishes school up there, she's going to
move back to California because this was the worst winter Spokane has
had in over 10 years. They had storm after storm and it snowed for over
a week straight, almost bringing the city to it's knees. Needless to say,
most of the town shut down and they had Monday thru Thursday off from
school a week ago because it was so bad. She said that she couldn't get her car to
move because the snowplow doesn't seem to go down her street very often.
And to see what she's experiencing, she sent me down a few pictures to
clue me in.
These are the step that she walks on to and from her apartment, if
you can find them.
