Status: Snowing

For the last hour or so, it has been snowing with some enthusiasm in downtown Seattle. Snow in the city has always been a rare and precious thing. I've worked downtown for 22 of the last 27 years, and I've never seen so many days of snow in a single season. We watched this particular weather front drift toward us across the Sound, spectral and implacable. Ferries trundled bravely into the haze, each one carrying my well-wish for a safe trip. Seagulls are riding the air currents, careening across the face of the building like they've been shot from a cannon. The snow doesn't seem to bother them in the least.

And then, as if at the flip of a switch, it stops.

Cool! And lovely descriptions of this.

Here in Lawrence, it's thunder-booming and lightning-ing. (Don't worry; Kij arrived not only safely but early.)

Well, Kij will be happy with the storm! Early, eh? Must have been quite a tailwind!

Everything came to a complete halt in our office yesterday. We all stood in our west-facing windows, watching the flakes dance and veer inches away.
