So, they said snow, and when they say snow, half of Seattle hides, and the other half are just as skeptical as my cat Maggie. So they said snow, and I waited, and waited, and waited.... because I like the snow, and it means that we may be able to burn out beloved 10 year old "snow log". A log that came with the Greenlake house when James bought it, that we moved to the new house.... It has gone thru some snows, but we have not burnt it. I have gotten used to seeing it sit next to the woodstove, in it's solid wholeness.
In any case, it did snow. Which makes for untraditional views of the house...and not so sweaty palms.
