Snow is nearly gone
Sadly the New York weather that visited Seattle earlier this week seems to be all but gone. In fact it looks like the last remnants are gathering in my backyard for one last party before being washed away by the Seattle rain (you didn’t think the Sun would have anything to do with it – did you?)
It was fun while it lasted, though. My friend Jon (who went to school with me in Rochester) and I drove around on Tuesday enjoying the white-covered trees and blasting Christmas carols through my car’s XM radio. This violated my no-christmas-music-until-december rule, but it was an opportunity that likely won’t present itself again. Without snow, it never feels like Christmas.
So now that I’ve managed to bring snow and ice to Seattle, my next trick will be to replace the word “pop” with the proper term, “soda.” If I succeed there, who knows what ambitious feat I could set my sights on. Maybe I could even teach the people of Seattle how to drive.
