post boxes in blaine
we took a little trip down to the states on saturday. it was sunny and mild in vancouver when we left. i in my motorcycle jacket and short sleeve plaid isabel marant top, jeans and suede oxfords and jon in jeans and a t-shirt w/spruce hoody and canvas adidas sneakers. totally unprepared for what was about to happen. half way to bellingham it was lightly snowing. we didn't think anything of it because it snowed in vancouver earlier in the week but melted away within an hour. it got heavier. huge fluffy sticky flakes. by the time we got to bellingham it was a full-blown blizzard! i'm sure almost a foot of snow on the ground and very slippery roads. this is pretty unusual for the west coast to get snow at this time of year, i think. after getting something to eat at jack in the box (the requisite foreign fast food stop) we decided to head back because the snow was not letting up.
these are some pictures half way back from bellingham as i was too busy trying to keep warm and avoid getting my feet and shoes soaked in the bellingham blizzard to bring out my camera!
