It snowed in Seattle today! Well, maybe an inch. Or not even. The snow itself looked wild coming down, big, fat flakes like we were living in a snowglobe, but then the ground remained green for a long time, until the snow finally decided to kind of stick.
Defective Yeti said it best, especially the comments. Said one: "I still remember the "blizzard" of '96, when a whole inch of snow knocked Seattle out for a week. I wanted to write a letter to Bill Gates to ask him to please buy the city a second snowplow and some salt." And said another: "You forgot the part where no one is permitted to purchase anything but milk, bread and toilet paper."
And oddly enough, after book club tonight, I stopped by the store and two of the three things I bought were...milk and toilet paper. I swear! It wasn't snow-related!
