It snowed today! That's a pretty big deal in Seattle. Even a two hour commute home after work couldn't dampen my spirits. I love the snow. I especially love those giant flakes that float down so peacefully and if you catch one in your hand you can see its unique shape before it melts away. Today's snow wasn't like that, it was more like tiny icy flakes that blew around in a pretty intense wind, but I'm hoping we'll get my favorite snow later this winter. We are supposed to get lots of snow this year.

Also, don't you just love that purple sky that happens sometimes when it's snowing or about to start?
