There’s potential for snow in the forecast, both today and tomorrow. Like always, it’s still uncertain; everything has to go just right (or just wrong depending upon your perspective) for it to snow in Seattle. Today, there’s a chance that by mid-afternoon, the fluffy white stuff might grace our skies and leave a light dusting all around. The original inspiration for glitter! If it doesn’t snow this afternoon, there’s a renewed chance of snow tomorrow. In either case, no real accumulation is expected.
If it does snow, it will be our first white Christmas since 2008. That year was definitely a case of too much of a good thing. It started snowing mid-December and didn’t stop until December 24th. Over a week straight of snow! Pretty much unheard of here. I only want an inch or two; a little extra decoration for the holidays, that disappears in time for the Tuesday commute.
And so I’m dreaming of a White Christmas, while sitting at my local coffee shop in front of the (gas) fireplace enjoying the quiet magic of Christmas Eve.
Merry Christmas to all of my friends who celebrate the holiday. In the immortal words of Irving Berlin:
May your Christmas be merry and bright,
and may all your Christmases be white.
