We live about 70 miles north of Spokane. Spokane is the city we drive to for shopping at stores like The Home Depot, Costco, Trader Joe’s, Fred Meyer, HomeGoods, TJMaxx, Target, Lowes and Hobby Lobby.

Here in Colville we have a Super Walmart, Super One grocery store, Safeway, Grocery Outlet, Builders Supply, Do It Center, Sears Hometown, North 40 and then several independent one of a kinds.

Spokane is on the eastern edge of Washington State close to the middle of the state. We are in the Northeast corner of the state. Washington State borders Idaho to the East, Oregon to the South, British Columbia Canada to our North and the Pacific Ocean to the West. Many Canadian visitors come down Highway 395 and our road from Canada. On any given day you will see a lot of B.C. license plates on cars in the Walmart parking lot.

We’re due a trip to Spokane for our monthly Costco run but we’ll have to wait out the snow storms that we are experiencing. A two lane highway in the snow with a 60 mph is not the safest way to travel. It would be okay except for other travelers who don’t seem to sense the danger enough to slow down.

Speaking of travelers…

We have a highway in our back acres for Quail.

There is talk for more snow in our neighborhood. Before that happens we are preparing to venture out soon to the grocery store. The sun is shining on the snow and it makes for beautiful vistas. We’ll be bundling up for sure. So thankful for the right clothing to wear when the temps are in the teens.

Happy Wednesday to y’all.

I’ll give it a try to link up to Tom’s Signs2 for this post.

  1. We were talking about travelers at work this week. If we were the only ones on the road in the snow we could go anywhere. But it’s the way everyone else drives that makes things scary! I hope you’re settling in ‘on the other side of the Cascades’!

  2. Hahaha. Love those traveling quail! I totally agree with the last comment…if we were the only ones on the road there would not be any problem. There is no room for slipping and sliding with the traffic congestion in our valley. Enjoy the snow and stay warm!

  3. The quail in the snow are darling, Ellen. I’m so glad you are being safe with the roads in your area. The snow is so lovely in your area. I remember when our daughter and her family moved to NH, they had to buy winter clothing appropriate for the cold winter. Stay warm and cozy.

  4. Give me the small town life anyday, Ellen, I enjoy visiting all the stores you mentioned! We experienced those fast drivers while visiting Wisconsin, my dh was in the passenger seat while our daughter-in-law was driving and she was of those driving fast, he was hanging on for dear life!~smile~ When we got to our destination he said , “Ree, I got saved three times driving home.”
    Loved the photo of the quail in snow, my dad raised quail and I was his #1 helper.
    Thanks for visiting and for your kind thoughts and prayers,
