The scene outside about an hour ago:
Susan of The Bicycle Garden commented on my previous winter-whine post (not that long ago, maybe just over a week?) that snow has been like a bad penny for me this year. I think this is true for the entire population of Seattle (with the exception of the ski crowd, of which I am not a member), and probably Portland and Vancouver too as well as everyone in between. Even a majority of my daughter’s kindergarten class voted recently that they are tired of snow.
Tonight’s storm started with sleet, moved to snow, and threw in a little thunder and lightning for good measure. And of course I forgot until it was over to go and shelter all the nice little plants I bought yesterday at the nursery. Oops. One of the flats is visible in this photo.
I fully realize the futility of railing against weather. But if we are going to have to put up with so much of this white crap each succeeding winter, I’m going to have to think about moving back to California!
