What-What?! Week of February 22nd

This week has been so nuts that I haven't thought about what I'm going to write.  Today's post is going to be a bit short.  Oops.

Yesterday, I took Saffron to a Girls Scouts event to pick up her sash, pins, and books.  It was a kickoff for the summer camps, and had a bunch of different activities.  She roasted her first-ever marshmallow and made s'mores.  She tells me it was delicious.
She also got to 'ride' in a boat, and decorate her own picture frame.  It was a ton of fun.

This was pretty entertaining, and about what I expected for Washington state.  When we moved up here, the farther north we got, the more Subarus we saw.  In Washington, you practically trip over them; I've even seen some of the more unusual varieties, like the regular sedans, the Justy, and the Baja.  What makes the numbers for Subaru more interesting is that Subaru doesn't generally have anyone buying the brand for commercial fleets, so nearly all those new cars sold are to consumers.  I'm part of the Subaru forum on Reddit, and have read about the waitlists for the new models.  Also, many owners live places where there is snow; the article mentions that, in many of the states where a truck was ranked highest, the highest ranking car was a Subaru.
