Good ol’ Father Winter covered the Greater Seattle Area in snow this weekend. The weather forecasts had been predicting it all week and our household was ready and excited!
I love it when it snows. The snow brings a quietness and a calmness that I find relaxing. Marissa enjoys the snow too, but since she cannot work from home, she is irritated if snow makes her commute more difficult. However, I think our dog loves the snow more than both of us combined.
She enjoys running and playing in the snow, of course, but her favorite thing is eating snow. When we go for walks, her nose is on the ground and she is eating as much snow as she can while keeping pace with us. It is very cute.
The snow also brings out all of the neighbors. We live within a few blocks of a park with a good sledding hill. If there is snow on the ground, that hill becomes the place to be for the entire neighborhood. From dawn until dusk, there are people sledding down that hill as fast as they can.
