Holly with a Skiff of Snow

Snow at sea-level in the Pacific Northwest is uncommon.

:  :  :

Overnight,

Seattle received about two inches of snow,

just enough to cover most things with a blanket of white.

It will be as close to a white Christmas

as we will get.

We’ve had seven Christmas days with snow since 1900:

  • 1909: 2 inches
  • 1915: dusting
  • 1944: dusting
  • 1965: 1 inch
  • 1990: 0.8 inches
  • 2007: 0.9 inches
  • 2008: 4 inches

That works out to be about a 7% chance of a white Christmas

on any given year…

wah.wah.wah.

~sigh~

My friend Nancy over at ‘A Rural Journal,’ is back online

after a wee blogging break ~ yeahhh!

Today is ‘Random 5 Friday.’

Here are my five random facts about me:

  • I love snow, I wish Seattle got more, a lot more.
  • This year I’ve done all my Christmas shopping online on eBay and Amazon.
  • I love scavenging for natural ‘decor,’ like willow branches, pussy willows and moss.
  • I chuckle at the new Sprint ads with James Earl Jones.
  • Feeding the wild birds (and the occasional squirrel) is a delight!

See you tomorrow for Weekly Top Shot #114
