We are in the middle of our first real snowstorm of the winter here in Seattle. Its causing all sorts of havoc with ice on the roads and trees, causing power outages due to downed trees and power lines due to ice accumulation. The Governor of Washington actually just called for a state of emergency. We don’t deal with these kind of condition here. Personally, I don’t care much for snow that hangs around for more than a day. It is pretty when it first arrives though and I was out in it for a bit taking some images with my grandson Darius. He of course has a totally different perspective on snow.

“I find myself at the extremity of a long beach. How gladly does the spirit leap forth, and suddenly enlarge its sense of being to the full extent of the broad, blue, sunny deep! A greeting and a homage to the Sea! I descend over its margin, and dip my hand into the wave that meets me, and bathe my brow. That far-resounding roar is the Ocean’s voice of welcome. His salt breath brings a blessing along with it.”
~ Nathaniel Hawthorne, “Foot-prints on the Sea-shore”
