snow day!

It is snow day in Seattle. The schools are closed and many stayed home. The first snow came to the city over the weekend. The first flake came Saturday night. I woke up to patches of powdery white and slippery ice on Sunday morning. Got my coat and my camera and carefully started walking around Green Lake to meet my friends for breakfast. Saw several happy dogs rolling around in the snow and a happy little girl on her wood sled.

Woke up this morning to a blanket of powdery white snow every where. I barely saw where the sidewalk ends and the road begins. Our dog, Maggie, was very excited to explore the new addition to her front yard and the corner park. I spotted my neighbor shoveling snow. Families out with their sleds and skis. Two guys on their skis actually went zooming down our street! The snow kept coming until late afternoon, along with bursts of gusty wind. Now all is quiet and Maggie is resting for another snow day in the city.
