Snowing in Seattle

January 17th, 2012 | Posted by james - the dad in Family

This past Sunday morning we woke up to snow here in Seattle! Since we grew up in Southern California, and own a house near Phoenix, we’re definitely not used to seeing snow outside our windows. However, it was a welcome surprise and we were all pretty dang excited!


We rushed the little guy out of bed and bundled him up in many layers of clothing (long undies, warm pants, sweater, winter coat, scarf, mittens, and snow boots).





Gavin had a blast playing in the snow and I had fun throwing little snow balls at him! The word on the street is that tonight/tomorrow we’re going to get even more snow, and they’re recommending that everyone stay home!

    It’s a thrill to wake up to SNOW! Fortunately it’s not going to STAY! We played outside in Chicago winters, sledding, skating, igloo making, etc and had lots of fun. And if we were lucky we got hot cocoa with marshmallows when we came in.

    We didn’t have to shovel it, drive in it, or sweep it off the cars as kids.
    I’m glad you all got to experience it.

    For picture #2, we recommend the caption – “What am I supposed to do with this stuff? I’m a kid from Arizona where it only rains cacti and lizards!” Be careful in this snow storm – remember you’re roots are desert sunshine and rare thunderstorms.

    I envy you guys. I would have liked staying home for a week due to snow. Somehow I don’t think that will ever happen here in southern California. Thanks for sharing the pictures. Gavin looks adorable as usual. Love, Nana & Papa
