Snow in Seattle is always a marvelous sight. Snow was expected Monday (I think it was this last Monday), but I did not see one drop in my area. It was kind of anti-climatic. I was giving up on snow yesterday, but then I looked out around 8:00, and it had been snowing for some time. I watched for a while. Then I went to bed very early, 9:00ish. So no surprise when I woke up around 12:00. I was looking out the window, and I kept thinking, “You should get up and take some pictures.” Around 12:30, I did just that. All the while thinking I really do need to stop my midnight getting up to take pictures (be it snow or in search of the moon). Anyway, I opened front door, and I heard what sounded like shoveling. Long story short, it was one of my neighbors who couldn’t sleep. We chatted for a while. Then some random dude who was coming home from work started talking to us. He was from Arizona and had never seen snow so was excited. I went on a short walk to take pictures. One of the neighbors ordered a pizza, so I watched that being delivered feeling bad for the delivery dude. I am not driving up or down Madison or Denny for nothing. Chatted with my neighbor some more, and then to bed around 1:30. Needless to say, I was pretty wired at that point so spent two hours or so asking myself why I got up in the first place. I knew it would get my mind going.
Anyway, I predict I will go to bed gang buster early tonight and hopefully sleep the night.
I was trying to remember the last time I was snowed in for a few days. I am not a big fan of of snow, but I am hoping it happens this year (Be careful what you wish for…because I would add at a timing that is good for my schedule of course).
