Buried branches

Even more than the snow on the road, the sidewalk, the parked cars … the snow on branches is one of the loveliest sights. (See photo below; Comcast was doing its slowdown thing again, so it took us a while to upload.) If you’re natives of warmer climes, as we are, this is always still so fresh and new — get out and take a walk — who knows what it’ll look like tomorrow! (Speaking of which, as of 10:05 pm, no word from Seattle Public Schools on whether they’ll call a “snow day” for tomorrow; you can keep checking their home page, though if they haven’t decided by now, they might not make the call till after 4 am or so.)

    Top portion of a big tree snapped off under the weight of the snow a few minutes ago on Brace Point/46th ave sw. Thankfully the kids were down the street.

    Lincoln/Murray/Beach Drive area:

    The snow has been off and on heavy coming down since 445p this afternoon and hasn’t stopped yet. It’s slippery coming down Lincoln toward Beach Drive (please be careful). Hard to get up hill to apartment, tires spin.

    Took a beautiful walk just now. I have to agree the branches are stunning especially in the large trees near streetlights. Saw a plow working up and down 35th. Still snowing pretty good, but little tiny flakes. Not too many cars out, but lots of folks letting the kids stay up late and taking walks in the snow.

    Also went to the Seattle Schools website. Not even a placeholder saying a decision will happen soon. It makes you wonder, is anyone home there?

    I walked for about 40 minutes last night. My, what a gorgeous night! This morning, I can’t go to work so will enjoy things from home.

Sorry, comment time is over.
