Snow!

Did you know that it snowed in Olympia on Sunday? Yes, it did. My coworkers tell me that it did not snow in Seattle, but it snowed most of the day in Olympia. The roads were pretty treacherous, but we did get to see our house in the snow for the first time ever.

And I was also reminded of how very, very much tiny dogs hate the snow. Cash has been wearing his new sweater, which was purchased locally and handmade from organic wool. Clementine, however, refuses to wear any sweaters, even if they are organic, handmade wool. So she’s very cold.

Speaking of people who refuse to dress weather-appropriately, Levi insists that wearing a blazer is good enough for wintertime temperatures. He is quick to point out that winter does not even technically start until December 21, and a blazer is perfectly adequate for the fall. Fortunately, the snow melted the next morning and heavy rains set in, and a blazer is adequate for that.

  1. Re the blazer/winter issue.
    We haven’t had snow here (English coast) but the weather has turned from fall to winter. On Sunday I was walking along the seafront with my friend’s 2 little boys. We were saying to each other that it was cold, and the younger boy said ‘it’s winter now’. The older one pointed out that winter doesn’t start until the 21st (older boys are like that) and the little one said, ‘I don’t need a calendar to tell me it’s winter. I can feel it.’
    Amen.

      more and more, it seems the older we get, the less we know. let’s not get technical about seasons when the trees and wind explain things perfectly well, right?

  2. Nice Blog. I like Olympia. I bet it’s hard to catch a light of the day in such a gloomy city, but it sure must feel nice when you do !
