We don’t see much of the winter white stuff anymore, here in Seattle. So every time the snow falls, Seattleites want to go out and walk around a bit, just to be reminded of what it was like in their childhoods, when they made snowmen and sledded and clutched steaming cups of hot chocolate just to warm their fingers.
Weather forecasters predict the snow we received here overnight might last only a day or two, before rains wash it away. Therefore, I had to step outside myself this morning and snap off a few photographs, like the one above.
Too bad this snowfall didn’t happen three weeks ago, in time for Christmas. But better late than never.
