It's snowing!

I was v. cranky when I got up this morning to see no snow on the ground, but it's kicked in and it should be sticking by noon.

Brace yourself for the hordes of photos to come. I've missed snow season.

Be patient, grasshopper. (:

On a pay-off note, there's some Express Mail coming your way early next week. UPS dropped off my _third_ check order around today. The first order apparently shipped to my NC address, grr. I appealed to the bank to refund the cost of the first two orders; there's something seriously wrong with their order handling since I notified them of my change of address in August.

This is why I claimed the garage parking spot. :) Those other losers will have to brush / scrape the snow off their cars if they want to go anywhere today. Not me *g* And believe it or not I've actually been out and about today (before 1000!)

My parent's garage is full of an amalgam of our stuff (moving to storage in my sister's barn after snow season), enough tools to probably disassemble a car or two, and camping equipment.

When I get the go-ahead to make major changes to the rec room (the entire back half of the room is going to change -- I plan on putting in cabinetry, moving all the sewing material from its current scattered around the house positions, finding a new home for the piano, etc.) a lot of the smaller camping items will ultimately wind up stored down there since the room's general theme will be outdoors/Scouting so we have someplace to display all the stuff we've acquired over the years (my parents were Scoutmasters of the base troop where they were stationed as newlyweds and they've been involved with Scouting ever since).

I haven't been out yet today, but Himself popped out to the grocery store and forgot several ingedients he needed so we winged homemade enchilada sauce today. Whee. (:

I'll try to post them later tonight. In the meanwhile, I should get a few more pictures before the light gets too low.

I love early snow season. Around mid-January, I'm ready for spring, but it's worth it just to have seasons here. I could never tell when they changed in NC because it went from sodden to flooded to mosquitoes instead of any significant change in temperature.

Oh, hell yes. I am so braced for snowphotohordes, because snow is awesome. It's been snowing on and off around here, though unfortunately it hasn't really stuck for long yet. That's one of the things I don't like about Seattle, I guess. Needs more snow, and the snow needs to stick around longer. Personally, if I had an arbitrarily large amount of money I'd maintain some sort of residence in say Greenland or Svalbard. I want me a fortress of solitude in the frozen arctic wastelands, is what I'm getting at here.

er, anyway. yes. it was snowing here yesterday when I left for work, big fat flakes. While running for the bus I shouted the "It's snowing it's snowing, god I hate this weather" line from Cub's "New York City"[1], and then shouted "BUT I DON'T HATE IT THAT MUCH HONESTLY I REALLY LIKE IT IT'S JUST THAT'S A LINE IN A SONG" to all the neighbors I'm sure I was waking up with my snow-related shouts of glee, just so they knew where I stood re: snow.

I also caught one on my tongue. snowflake, not neighbor.

I drive Himself nuts singing that TMBG cover, but he's partly to blame because my back can't take digging in the stacked boxes for our CDs -- Factory Showroom is one of the CDs that came out in the car when we moved. "Everything looks beautiful when you're young and pretty." Yep.

I will save some snow for you. No idea how to get it to you, but we're forecast for 6-10" today and there's about 2" on the deck so far.

I dunno, the problem with Snow In Seattle is sort of like what you say, but whenever it _DOES_ stick for a while, it's all Big Snow Storm What Fucks Everything Up. So, y'know, I'd probably like snow a lot more if we'd have Fun Snow. Like snow that would come down, stick around for a while, but be all "Oh, sure, here, yeah, sorry, just shove me off the sidewalk and road and stuff, I don't mind, I like the grass better anyway!"

I have absolutely positively no problem whatsoever with everything being all fucked up due to snow. I like snow waaaay more than I like the things it stops.

That is one thing I do not miss about COLDorado... snow. It is evil. It destroys everything it touches.

I'll be ready for spring by January, but I'd rather have snow half the year or more than ever live in North Carolina again.
Seriously, I'll trade having to wear long underwear for five months of the year (I'm two weeks in on that season *g*) for living someplace where the worst reaction anyone ever has to the pro-gun/pro-choice/anti-blindly-accepting-government bumperstickers on our old car is to pull up next to us at a stoplight and yell "50,000 people die every year from gun accidents!" (Himself blithely responded "and how many die from teenage drivers?", which the kid conceded to us).

On the bright side, I get to do the bumperstickers on this car, so we're going pro-choice/pro-environment/pro-education. It's swell to be able to buy bumperstickers locally that say "SAVE AN ELK / SHOOT A LAND DEVELOPER". Granted, I'm all for thinning the elk herd up here because of the severe overpopulation, but I'm for shooting land developers too since some lobby's money is keeping a moratorium on building permits for the state at bay and we're going to have a hell of a water crunch next year with all the new construction needing more water for their grass lawns. (I am morally superior on that count. Ask me about my xeriscaped yard and the beautiful native low-water plants that save us so much we can sustain a bathtub-sized pond with koi during non-snow season.)
