I feel bad for people on the East Coast, as they get slammed with all that snow right now. I really do. It looks terrible. And here we sit in Spokane, with our green lawns.... With just a little rain and a chance of clouds.
Lest we forget, however, of the Ways Of Winter 2008/2009, here is a photo of my car in front of my house last January.
In the end, we had over six feet of snow in 20 days' time. Here is my recollection of events at that time. Ah, the memories....
So. Feel no guilt - no remorse - if you are living in the Inland Northwest these past few non-snowy days. It wasn't our turn for snow this year.
