2008 was the year…our first Christmas living along the shores of the Pacific. We had just moved from the frigid cold and hip deep snow of Eastern Washington to, what we thought was, a warmer climate where snow was a rarity. The Long Beach Peninsula can be found in the southwest corner of Washington and in comparison to where we came from it was certainly warmer! Warmer, but we still got hit by a bit of a snowstorm that year.
Liz was "stuck" with us for an extra long Holiday visit because of canceled air flights; but it worked out well as we got to share this wonderful experience with her.
