I wasn’t willing to admit that a snow storm was probable on Tuesday night when the forecasters said we’d have several inches in Seattle. I insisted on driving up to Seattle from Portland on Tuesday night, my boss allowed it so I could make it up before the storm and still go to my planned events later this week. The roads were clear almost all the way up I-5 and not a flake existed anywhere in Seattle on Tuesday night.
Even when I woke to about 4 inches yesterday at my parent’s house on Queen Anne, I thought it would be raining by now.
I can tell this is a rite of passage into adulthood: I’m not sledding and I’m wishing the roads were clear so I could go about my schedule as planned. What happened to racing up and down the hills?! I guess I only do that in the form of downhill skiing now.
I hate to perpetuate the hype, but it is quite literally still dumping in Seattle right now. There have been teasers with freezing rain early this morning, but as of now, it’s just snow, and it’s still falling.
I’ve taken refuge at Bustle Coffee Shop on Queen Anne with several others who are resisting the urge to sled and have laptops open in an attempt to work.
So, whatever Mother Nature, just do what you do and I’ll just keep changing my plans, and learning to enjoy it 🙂
