Seattle in the Snow

20 Jan

I happened to be in Seattle today, the day the press declared it to be SNOWMAGEDDON.

It was beautiful. As someone who grew up in Los Angeles, I’m not accustomed to being around snow unless I’m skiing in it. I’ve never lived in a city that gets regular snow. I actually brought my skis with me expecting that I might be able to ski through the financial district, but after looking at the streets I decided to keep my skis in working condition.

Really, it wasn’t so bad. Of course, being that Seattle isn’t accustomed to such things, the city basically completely shut down.

In dozens of places that I’m accustomed to seeing hundreds of people, it was all but deserted.
