Peter and I snuck off during the week last week to go skiing up at Mt. Baker, which was lovely. Plenty of coverage on the slopes, and it snowed a bit while we were there, so the conditions were pretty good except for when the snow/wind reduced visibility to almost nil. We got back on Friday afternoon, and (surprise!) no power at our apartment. A huge storm had come through Thursday night and many, many trees fell over. (I have pictures of one such tree, and pretty mountain scenery from skiing, that I’ll be posting on my Flickr account when we get internet back at our apartment–at the moment we have lights but no cable for our cable modem.) Anyway, power stayed out until Sunday, which made for a rather cold and dark couple days.
