Why Seattle Hates Snow – It’s Our Hills, Stupid!

Global warming hits the Pacific Northwest!

Day three home, snow-bound (I’m not one to drive in the snow!).  Ventured out today and walked to the grocery store (I needed milk).  We’ve got about 5 inches with 5 more predicted for tonight, then again on Wednesday!

Outside my front door

Snow is pretty draping the trees

A white blanket!

Baby kitty doesn’t really like it though!

Update (Tuesday): Day 4, stuck at home.  View from my front door as snow comes down again!

Here’s her darling Brazilian feline, Panda.

Panda definitely looks loved, doesn’t she?

If you’d like your pet’s pics published on FOTM, send them to me at FellowshipTips@aol.com. :D

Legend of the Snow Fairy

The Snow Fairy

Throughout the afternoon I watched them there,
Snow-fairies falling, falling from the sky,
Whirling fantastic in the misty air,
Contending fierce for space supremacy.
And they flew down a mightier force at night,
As though in heaven there was revolt and riot,
And they, frail things had taken panic flight
Down to the calm earth seeking peace and quiet.
I went to bed and rose at early dawn
To see them huddled together in a heap,
Each merged into the other upon the lawn,
Worn out by the sharp struggle, fast asleep.
The sun shone brightly on them half the day,
By night they stealthily had stol’n away

-by Claude McKay (1889-1948)

Legend has it that in the far far North, after every snow storm, a Snow Fairy appears at night and shovels the snow off the driveways and sidewalks of good folks.

During a recent storm, the elusive Snow Fairy was sighted. Luckily, someone took a picture with their cell phone.

May you be blessed by a visit from the Snow Fairy in your time of greatest need!

H/t beloved fellow Doc’s Wife.

(Yes, I know. I’m still in shock that Doc’s Wife sent this pic! LOL)
