It snowed last night. The first nit of snow around the Puget Sound area since will last winter. It wasn't a huge amount of snow overnight barely an inch where I live. It reminded me of when I was a kid. It was always exciting to hear about possible now predictions because living on the west side of WA state snow is not a yearly thing. Sometimes there would be a single snow storm or more in a year but other years there would be none. Every kid waited in rapt attention as the school announcements were read on the tv or radio news. I'd wait excitedly as they got closer and closer to my district and.... 2 hours behind. Late start not a closure *sigh*
Today has reminded me of that as I look out at the melting inch of snow and struggle to get my day started.
