The first day it snowed back in January I did what most people did – I ran outside and took photos. Then I uploaded them and looked at them and thought how pretty things looked all covered in white. Then it snowed the next day, and the day after that, and the day after that. And I forgot about those first photos I took. Until I was organizing my computer folders a bit more.
So while Seattle is bathed in 60 degrees and beautiful sunshine (today) – I’ll have a “spring in Seattle” post coming soon – I though I’d revisit the snow storm that hit one more time. The snow was wet and came down fast and heavily stuck to everything. After the storm everything mellowed with the silence of a true winter storm. The peaceful calm of the season’s first blanket of snow. And all around us people venturing out to enjoy it. From a large number of sailboats to kids sledding at GasWorks Park.
This is one of my absolute favorite buildings in all of Seattle. What was originally a steam plant has been restored to ZymoGenetics. (the link is a look back at the history of the building)
Lake Union is not normally this calm. It added to the peaceful air that surrounded everything.
My favorite snow ever is the kind that sticks to every tiny branch. This snow did not disappoint.
