Costco!!

The highlight today was going to Costco – one of my favorite stores. I look forward to going to Costco like I do for a vacation! Let’s just say my food rations are set for a couple weeks. Today’s run was better than I expected. After the miserable outing on Monday, I wasn’t keeping my…

Arrillaga nice

I had a great workout at Arrillaga gym today. I mainly worked pecs with benching and cable cross-overs. On the bench I built up to 10 reps of 150 pounds. This is not my best, but pretty good for having not lifted in a while and last weeks sickness that left my muscles fatigue for…

Light snow

Tiger Mountain in Issaquah at Sun Down by Karin, Issaquah. I found this gorgous scene on KOMO TV’s weather photos page. I wish I could be at home to experience the winter wonderland. In fact, it’s still snowy and cold in Seattle. My mom told me light snow fell for about 3 hours this afternoon…

Sammamish Snow

This image if from the City of Sammamish and is taken on 228th Avenue on Thursday morning. Totals around the city ranged from 4 to 10 inches. I am currently struggling with a cold. My muscles feel fatigued and I just want to rest all the time. Hopefully I can get back on track soon…

Seattle Arctic Blast 2007

  To add to the seemingly never-ending list of extreme weather in the Seattle area this winter, Western Washington got hit with another snow storm today and this evening. This event was eerily similar to the snows of November 27th, coming right during the height of rush hour in the Seattle metro area and followed…

Break

The portion of my winter break at home is coming to an end. It was a relaxing time and nice to spend some time with family. Tomorrow I head out to Whistler for some skiing and then fly back to Palo Alto to start the Spring semester of law school. It looks like there will…

Weather in Review

It’s 2007!! Happy New Year! 2006 was a great year for me and I look forward to more great things in 2007. I am definitely a weather enthusiast and last year was a particularly interesting one for Seattle and Western Washington. Check out this great article, the annual weather in review for Western Washington, written…

Tamar

My niece Tamar is now over 4 months old. She is well mannered with little crying and annoyingness. Maybe it’s because my sister is on top of the mom job. Here is a recent photo: In other news, my brother-in-law came over with a chainsaw and we cut the tree downed by the tree service…

Snow on the Plateau!

Last night we got 2+ inches of snow at my house in Sammamish. It doesn’t snow often, so I grabbed some photos as it was coming down: Sammamish Snow! Snow coating the trees A beautiful night as the snow came down.  The snow fell heavily at times.

Good workout

Today I had a good workout at Klahanie gym with my mom. Yes, I worked out with my mom – it’s true – but she is a great partner! She is a world record holder at the bench press for her weight and age group (203.7 pounds for a 112 pound, 54 year old). My…

Fallen Tree Photos

This evening the tree service came and removed another tree that was leaning over our house. I guess after they took a look at it, they decided it was high priority – it wouldn’t have taken another storm to knock it down… Here are some photos of the tree that fell over our driveway before…

Windstorm Clean-up

The 2006 windstorm has had some major impacts, especially here on the eastside. Finding gas and perishable foods was a challenge for several days. However, things are generally getting back to normal around here as more neighborhoods and businesses regain electricity. We finally got our power back in Sammamish after four days and some very…
