What's snow again?
It was snowy white outside, then half the yard melted and I heard dripping. Then it snowed again, in big clumps coming down to beat the band. Now the sun came out - this is strange even for March, usually it's cold rain not clumps of white rain-snow!
Was watching paralympic sledge (or sled) hockey, pretty good but sort of like women's international hockey where not that many countries must have a development program in hockey and the teams aren't all yet at the same competitive level; so the score is pretty lopsided.
Curling's coming on, OK! USA v. Canada, but they're showing highlights and coming into the 8th end (of 10)... I guess I'll take what I can get.
Seriously though I prefer Fall to all others then Spring, then Summer then................................winter.
Gary sorta like them all ... but then again, by East Coast and Midwest standards, there's not much change here. But most likely Gary prefers winter, because bluer skies, better clouds, easy driving to snow (when Gary want's snow) and significantly less tourists and slightly easier parking.
Well, of course people who just sit outside in a pile of snow are going to be cold. Duh.
I'll take snow Any.Day. over headaches, bugs, sweating, bloating, itching, avoiding loud crowds of people who insist on being outside, wanting to vomit if I walk faster than a crawl, hiding from the sun so as not to literally burn my flesh, and praying for no power outages knocking out the air conditioning.
It was gorgeous here all across the Pacific Northwest! Record high temps for the date in Seattle (73?), Bellingham, Everett, Washington, and very balmy and sunny in Oregon, not even a breeze, blue skies, and a high temp here of around 71 degrees....today? 52 degrees and steady rain!
And as I leave work, the sun is bright and a lot of snow is already melting. I pulled into the parking lot and nothing was plowed. Had to guess where the lines were (I guessed well and was perfectly centered in the spot!) They surely plowed some over the course of the day, but even the snow below my car has totally melted. Looking around, you would never guess what it looked like this morning.
It is approximately 67 degrees on the back porch. Humidity is low. I can't see a cloud out there. If only I could afford to go down to IAH and shot some aircraft.

East coast mud slides.
Former fire-boss (the one retiring) has a daughter (maybe 10 or 11 years old) that plays in a league. They went to championships last couple of years.
The sled hockey was pretty darn good. They're talking about wanting it to be more part of the Olympics rather than separate events a couple of weeks later, I hope they can work toward that.
It snows, then the sun comes out, then it snows, then the sun comes out... supposed to do this all evening (without the sun coming out part) whatever time that will be! I feel like it's way earlier than the clocks say, being this bright at 7pm when it's this cold and snowy. This time change is way too early in the year.
