No longer snow-less in Seattle
The weather geniuses around here have been predicting snow for days. I was about to give up and figure that I must live in some vortex or black hole because it certainly wasn’t snowing around here at all. Finally, around 1:00 this morning, it started snowing. (What was I doing up at that hour? Typical for me these days, sorry to say.) Then, this morning when I woke up, it was snowing heavily. We got a good three inches, but now the sun is out, and it’s warmed up to about 40F and the snow is melting off the trees in big clumps. I forgot to have my camera with me when I let Lily out because it was really darling. The snow was up to her belly, poor thing. Luckily we have some bushes she can get under.
So, here are some pictures I took. I’m amazed how they turned out taking them through a closed window and not standing outsize freezing my butt.
This is the thermometer attached to my back fence, and the first picture I took this morning.
The hummingbird feeder.
The birdbath in the front yard. Photo is retouched to change it to black and white. I like how it turned out.
This is the backyard looking from the back sliding window in my dining area. I just love this view and am glad the builders were smart enough to only build a short, three foot high fence along the back.
Here it is around 9 or 10, starting to clear up a little bit. The next three photos are unedited. I’m amazed at this camera sometimes.
