|Our museum looking rather snowy (taken by Brittany Wagoner)|
By Thursday, my hiking day, we are supposed to be back to rain, lots and lots of it, and temperatures more than twenty degrees warmer than today. Here in the Pacific Northwest, we do get snow and cold sometimes, but this is enough already. In the recent past, we barely got a hard freeze during the winter months, much less days of snowfall. And it's only February. At least we are past Groundhog Day, February 2, when we pass the halfway point to spring and there is actually more light than dark. We are gaining more than three minutes of daylight every day now, in the Northern Hemisphere at least. (I sometimes forget that some of my blogging friends are experiencing the opposite.)
I heard they got it even worse in Seattle, though, with up to several FEET of snow in some places. I'll bet they are happy to see the sun come out today. Hope wherever you are, you are safe and comfy. I'm sitting in my favorite chair and just finished a great lunch.
