We were ready to take off but a thunderstorm delayed us an hour. At last take off. We were surprised to land in Seattle and see snow on the ground. When we left home in Rolling Meadows at 6 am it was 60 degrees. We couldn't leave for Spokane until they brought in a plane from Portland because the scheduled plane was not available. Our timing was right because at 5:30 pm they closed SEA-TAC airport after a cargo plane went off the runway. We were glad to be arrive at Ted and Allison's. We made a trip though the snow to get groceries and Phil made his yummy chicken cattiatore.
On Tuesday the four of us went to Ellie's sister and brother-in-law's, Marcy and Bruce for a delicious dinner and lots of good visiting. As we were going back to Ted and Allison's it was foggy. This is worth mentioning because the temperature was zero!!! It got to minus five degrees that night. Despite the cold and snow packed streets we got out for a walk each day. Temperatures for our walks were about 15 degrees so it was invigorating!
