I love Seattle. Many things to love: coffee, music, quasi-diversity if you look hard enough, the topography, ocean, the rain, teriyaki restaurants to rival Starbucks stores, etc. But it doesn’t snow very often and so when it does, people go crazy. Schools were delayed two hours earlier this week because of possible icy conditions. Yesterday, school was shut down because of a pending snowstorm – which never came. But alas, we get our “snowstorm” today that folks are jokingly calling the Seattle Snowpocalypse.
Seriously, it’s not that big of a deal but when you’re not use to it, local news stations cover it for hours as if it’s the end of the world. But just case it is the end of Seattle as we know it, here’s my farewell address to everyone. God bless you. I hope to see you at the other side.
- If you’re from around here, what’d you do today?
- For others, how’s the weather in your neck of the woods?
