Okay... okay... I will take the blame. I should not have written about Spring in my previous post. Yes, I know... I was tempting the Fates and I jinked us. Snow arrived in the Puget Sound area on Saturday. The Arctic cold that had been shy and staying up in the Northern Territories and Alaska decided to spread out and finally swung down to the northern US.
It started on Saturday. We went out for our weekly errands and it started coming down fast and big flaked. Always a sign that it is not that cold. It was so funny at the store. It was suddenly empty - everyone was rushing to get checked out and home. The Civic was fine on the few hills home.
Sunday we had thought about going out to the movies and see "The Artist" but we decided to stay home and we were a couple of couch and internet potatoes. G watched the football games and later we watched the first episode of Downton Abbey. Dinner was a warming sweet potato enchilada casserole.
I have Monday off for Martin Luther King Day (gotta love union contracts). I decided to head out for a walk around the neighborhood. It was surprising quiet for a Monday. The temperature was just above freezing so the streets were slushy but still slick. I watched my balance. Not much going on a few snow ball fights and a couple of interesting snow people. The wind was slightly biting but refreshing.
Here are few pictures from my walk and a tune from Fleet Foxes which were perfect tune for a snowy walk.
Around the corner - other people were also out for a walk
Here is one of my favorite tunes while out for a walk
