My sister wrote from New Orleans yesterday to say she and Mom had spent their sunny, warm afternoon knitting outside on the back deck. While things are generally moderate and pleasant throughout the winter in Seattle, if I were knitting on my back deck right now, I'd be anything but warm!
I've been in Seattle since fall 1999, and I've never seen snow in late March. Our Ohio family might laugh at this paltry accumulation, but you all should know that I took the picture early in the snowfall. We've gotten more since then, and it looks like it's actually going to stick. On some parts of the deck, there's already 3/4-inch!
Safe to say I'm not going anywhere on the scooter today.
