We can has sno.
First snowfall of the winter happened yesterday, much to the dismay of everyone in Seattle because OMGSNOWMAGEDDON!!
I’ve learned that I have moved to a city full of weather-drama-queens. It’s official.
When I get yelled at for mentioning the dreaded “S” word in response to a query about what we’re “up to” while waiting for my coffee to be prepared? Dra.Ma.Tize.
When the weather forecasters are freaking out about every single flake to descend from the heavens (even though it’s already been snowing in the mountain passes and the state capital)? Mmmhmm.
Don’t get me wrong: I am not the biggest snow fan. Let me explain.
I adore the first snowfall. There’s something peaceful and beautiful about watching it fall outside the window (particularly when you’re not expecting it until later in the evening) and watching the kitties being as entranced as YOU are? It’s magical.
But that sense of peace and tranquility ends up becoming crankiness after, say, the first couple of days. When you realize that living on the side of a hill means you aren’t going ANYWHERE unless you’re walking in snow shoes, you take on a decidedly more pessimistic view of winter. The first few Car Ice Ballet demonstrations are giggle worthy. Being ONE of the cars? Not so much.
Still, the snow didn’t stick around for long and was mostly gone by the time we headed out for our weekly Kona run. It’s supposed to snow again later today (we’ll see) and then it’ll be sunny and warmish until we’ve already made it to Vegas. Hooray for vacations!
Stay tuned, there’s an upcoming Emo!Thor Adventure coming up. And I’ll do what I can to stay on top of them while we’re gone, but I still want to thank all of you who do stick around and read what I put out there! It makes me happy to know that at least some of you are enjoying what I do. *smiles*
