We’ve been having an awesome weather streak (by typing this, I’m sure I’ll be jinxing the area!) with sunny skies and highs in the low to mid ’50s. We’ve had a pretty mild winter so far…knock on wood, which is good with the whole dam breaking thing going on.

Tonight we went to the Seattle Thunderbirds hockey game (Rico’s birthday present from Shane and Amanda – thanks guys!!). We didn’t know until we got there that they’re on a 16 game losing streak…tonight we hit #17…it was still fun and I think we’re planning to go back next weekend. They’re playing Portland and Portland games have a reputation for being very … lively (read: violent, many brawls to be cheered on).
