When we were being courted by Microsoft in 2002, we asked the usual questions about the climate: does it get cold here, does it snow, etc.; "Oh no, it is rare to see snow in the Seattle area -- And yes, it does get a little chilly, but it's over before you know it." Well, it has snowed two years running. White fluffies are drifting down tonight to give us a slip and slide morning. Temps have dropped to the upper twenties (F).

I let the cats out in it, this being their second time ever to experience snow. They were just 8 months old thefirst time and their reaction was puzzlement. This time Fariell flew outside, stopped for a couple of seconds and then teleported back inside, giving me a look of having been betrayed (I'm always to blame for inclement weather). 

Ah well, time to cuddle up and read read about the ongoing election shenanigans; it's a good read: excitement, pathos, treachery, innuendo, plot twists, and maybe some day a governor.

Woke up this morning and found a thin coating of snow on the grassy hill. It melted by noon. I think the TV newscasts overplayed the snow angle to crank up their overnight ratings. Much nicer are the blue patches of sky and the plashes of sunlight.

My late best friend moved up there in the late '80's, and her experience over nearly 15 years was that it always snowed at least once per winter, not much, but enough to freak out all the drivers, who always acted like it was a strange alien substance never seen before. She figured they forgot what snow was, during the rest of the year.

Cats know that humans really control the weather, and are just getting back at them for things we don't even know they did.
