Freak snow shower

It rarely snows in Seattle, even in the middle of winter. Spring snow, at the end of March, is unheard of. Yet this morning it started coming down in big, fat flakes and kept coming for several hours.

Weird. Just last week I was walking around the neighborhood in short sleeves, taking pics of early blossoms and daffodils.

Eventually, by early afternoon today, a little dusting stuck to the lawns and the cars. It didn't last long, but it was a fun spring surprise.

It is still snowing down here at our house. We are about 1250 ft above sea level. It snowed off and on all day yesterday and has been coming down steady all day today. The kids are out working on their snow fort they started yesterday. Great fun!
