OK Joe, you win. I don't like the weather here anymore.
I think I've lost track of how many snows it's been. Typical winter in Seattle is two. 1/2 way through the winter and we've had at least four. That doesn't include the major wind storms and floods either. To say nothing of persistent grey skies with intermittent rain. The significant amount of the snowfall from four days ago still remained in the subzero temperatures (Celsius in the day and Fahrenheit at night) when we received another bout last night. With frozen streets I saw at least two stalled buses within a few blocks of my place earlier this morning, adding to the hellish commutes that car drivers have been facing these last few days. And they say with Global Warming, the NorthWest is going to be hit the worst out of anywhere in the United States, so things are only going to get worse.
Me, I celebrated. Some kids were in the process of putting up a rather gigantic snowman, and I thought I'd celebrate my cultural diversity with a Nordic snowdragon. Traditionally a candle is planted inside the mouth so that the glow of the inner fires can be clearly seen.
