Our Version of Snow This Year

Last year Seattle had so much snow this week in December you may recall it shut down the airport and left many of the hill streets unused except by sleds, saucers and tubes :-). The city doesn't get enough snowfall to justify a fleet of snowplows, so when it comes down heavy every decade or so and lasts more than a few days, the city just shuts down. No snow so far this year. We are having warm rainy days now, and this is the only version of snow you will find around town. The homeowner arrived home from work and saw me on the sidewalk with a tripod snapping away and apologized that the snowman faced the house instead of the street to entertain her two year old from the window. How sweet!

Sweet, indeed. It's as if the snowman is looking longingly toward the house.

Gotta keep those kids entertained any way you can this time of year. Glad we've no snow this year! Very inconvenient last year, though it sure was pretty!

We've just got a load of snow - been watching it fall most of the day. It keeps stopping and then starting again.

Haha, nice. We have lots of snow here, and the temperature is below freezing... I'd prefer warm and rainy weather to be honest
