So the great Seattle Blizzard of '05 has passed through with typical Northwesternly timeliness. Which means everyone thought it would hit Thursday, and planned not to be at work Friday, and instead it hit Saturday. Oh, and after they said that this was it, it hit again, harder, on Sunday morning.

And by "hit" I mean a light dusting, something that wouldn't even merit comment in the midwest unless it was the first snowfall of the season. Gone by about noon. It was heavier to the north of the city, up tpwards Everett, and much worse on the passes, but the south sound area, as is typical, was spared the worst of it.

Here's a picture from the backyard, showing the snow in all its snowiness.


Yeah, you folk living back east can start hating me now.

More later,
