Everyday at lunch, Lauren likes to watch and art show on PBS. This is what she did while I was updated this blog.

January 1 was a wild day for Jeff, as the wind let out it's force on Bend. Jeff spent the entire day working on down power lines. This is one of the pictures he took of an area that was hit by the wind. It was reported that the wind gust got up to 65 mph and higher in some areas. Generally he doesn't have to go out on outages and can do most of it by the computer, but with 4,700 customers without power and being on call he had to go. It's been a mess since Dec. 31, Jeff's phone has been going off all night long since the then. Only 3 more nights of on call and then he can get some sleep.
Ok, crazy winter weather up here in Oregon. It started with very, very cold temps, so cold Lauren missed school because the bus wouldn't start. Then we had snow, snow, and snow till Christmas Eve. Now it's warmed up to a mess of mud with the temp. being 51 degree yesterday. Now we're back to a cold today with a little bit of snow. Now we have ice all over, so don't forget your ice skates if you come visit, hahah. Just before the snow melted away we made a snowman and a snowcat, we also went sleding again before it started raining. The snowman and snowcat have since melted.
