Weather Alert

footprints in snowThis is my weather. It’s what I am used to and comfortable with in the winter. And to boot (oh yes I meant to say that) it looks like we are going to have a lot of it. SNOW that is.

I realize that where I come from and where I have lived most of my life that snow is expected, planned for and accomodated fairly easily. Here in Seattle it is a snow bird of a different color.  Since I don’t have to be anywhere in the next few days I am feeling pretty good about it.

Yesterday I went for a walk around my immediate neighborhood. This was the first chance I had to do so. The snow made for a blanket of quiet. The only sounds were the crunch of snow underfoot and the cawing of crows and peeping of the little birds. The trees were wearing their Sunday best looking very fashionable.

 As I approached the main street there were few cars about. However plenty of people were out walking. Rosy cheeks and pulled down caps, everyone looked happy. I decided to try out one of the local eateries for breakfast.

restaurantLeena’s Cafe was already crowded with folks. People were laughing and smiling and enjoying hearty breakfasts. Never having been there before I don’t know if this was the regular crowd or a result of the weather. The service was friendly and relaxed and the food was good an plentiful. I’ll be going back again sometime soon.

On my return home, in my Midwestern way, I greeted the people I passed on the street. Back to the quiet of the side street I stopped to admire the trees in their finery once more. Now to get some work done.

Summer Remembered

Summer is over here. But the memories linger on. Flowers for a cloudy day.

OK, it’s time to hit the road to see what I’ve found lately. First off we need a ride. What shall it be? We could take a plane. No, I don’t think so.

We need to dress up a little. How about a flower for your button hole or behind your ear? This should do nicely. Pick one of these.

Then off to see something particularly Pacific Northwest.

I’m getting a little hungry. Pizza, a burger, chicken wings, tofu? Maybe not.

The day is just sailing by so fast.

Phew! That’s about enough for one day, don’t you think?
