baby….its cold outside..

So I am sitting here at my desk…on a sunday…yep..a sunday. 16th floor looking out over downtown Seattle, the spaceneedle…The Roosevelt hotel…all blanketed in snow. Lady Antebellum is on my computer singing the classic¬†song “Baby its cold ouside” I even have a cup of hot chocolate. I could be upset that I am unable to be at home with my family in Magnolia, and that I am here at work….but I am not upset. It is actually kind of neat and exciting.¬† The entire city has shut down except for the hotels and just one or two crazy people out “trying” to drive in it. I heard on the news and from several locals that this is an oddity and that the last time there was this much snow was about 21 years ago. I have been here a month, and have never really lived in this extreme of a climate…I like it. Alot. It is starting to snow again and looking out at the sound…it is invisible in the white out.

I love it here.

Thanks for making me feel welcome instantly. Our Wolf listeners are unreal. Well, it is time to bundle up and go back to my hotel. Perhaps I will watch a movie that I seem to never take time for…always rushing..life is so busy. The snow slows us down from life robbing you of time that you can never get back..with those who are the most important..our friends and family.

Merry Christmas to all! And thank GOD for the snow.

    Sometimes you need a change in your life and I think many people would have been liked to be in your shoes is Seattle where you can just sit back and relax, enjoy cup of hot chocolate, watch a movie, see the snow falling. Great.

    Lola, I think your fantastic! I love you on the air and all that you do! The only thing I don’t like about you is that you make it hard to work! I want to listen to you instead of working at my desk! Especially your thoughts of the day! Great stuff, welcome to Seattle and hope you stay for a LONG LONG TIME!

    The station finally has a great line up of people, Fits, you and Lobo!

    You talked about your myspace and facebook. I’m in both, find me!

    Lola, you are great! I just read your bloggy thing and now I have a face with the name your adorable by the way. I love that you are into antiques as am I. I would love to see your house someday. Do you still own or run the coffe shop? What kind of things do you collect I like rustic not glassware stuff. I also collect goat items, weird but I have goats and just love them, and you don’t see many goat things so its fun.
    Have a great one glad your in the pack

    Hey Lola! I have to just say I am so excited to see how much we have in common! I saw what you put as your first concert and got so excited! My family is all from Arkansas (my mother’s). We had those very same jam sessions in our kitchen, and had 8 track tapes of them. Aunts and Uncles came from miles around and played and sang all night long, it was an incredible thing to see! Welcome to Seattle, I hope you LOVE it here!
