Snowing here this afternoon & evening

On our way home from Spokane it began to snow. When we got home it was not that far south yet, so 'tP' got his leaves picked up and I went off to get some shopping done. I also picked up the #2 GS for his weekend sewing lessons - that will happen tomorrow as it took a while to get the shopping done.
When we got back from the "local shopping" all three of us went down south to go to Costco and to pick up some dog food. We stopped to get some supper at DairyQueen and then to get a bit of fuel for Peter Prius.
So, by the time we got back on the road it was very dark, both due to the end of DayLightSavingTime, but to the storm that had moved in by then. Because the valley is only ~700 elevation it was raining (pretty heavy) down there, but as we came up the hill to our "neck of the woods" it turned to snow - very wet & heavy snow, too - and it was blowing straight toward us making it very difficult to see. We had to slow way down as the visibility was so poor - about 35-40 MPH the 15 miles to home.
We made it OK and now we are all safe & warm in the house. The #2 GS is working on his Treasure Hunt Search book that he got at Costco and I am listening to podcasts & will do some knitting.
SHHHHHHHHHHH gramps is watchin scarey movies - UGH!!!!

Did all of this happen in one day? --Spokane, local shopping, valley shopping? That's a lot of traveling, and as a "local," I understand how tedious it becomes when the weather turns nasty. I talked my husband out of a trip to Spokane over the long weekend.
