Just this past rainy Monday, my family and I were all driving around in our car (well, Carrie was the only one actually driving; Avery & I were riding in the backseat). My 3-year-old daughter asked if she could use my phone to take photos out the window. She ended up taking 86 photos in about 10-15 minutes. Here are my nine favorite in random order (click any to embiggen):
Also, at one point she put the camera lens down right on her leg and said, rather ominously, that she wanted to “take a photo of the darkness.”
Western Washington freaked out a little today because some snow fell in mid-March. It is funny. Don’t people remember that the last two years in a row it snowed in late April? Also, it was well above freezing (at least in my neck of the woods) all day and is expected to stay that way, so it isn’t like this is going to stick around for long.
But still, it is pretty. And there were some impressive, quarter-sized flakes. I filmed this through the front window of my work at about 9:30 this morning:
Now next time it snows I want everybody just to take a deep breath and relax. Don’t act like you’ve never seen it snow before. Y’know, be careful out there (of course), but I don’t want three out of every four Facebook status updates to be snow freak-outs.
