It snows here in Seattle some winters. And this is one of them. I can’t remember any appreciable snow falling for 3 years or so. This wasn’t a big snowfall. But it was enough for my 2 1/2 year old to be able to build his first snowman with his young friend, Simon.
Of course, lots of snow falls in the Cascades which are only a 40 minute drive or so from the heart of the city. So we have winter sports galore. But the city, except for some years which are major exceptions to the rule, usually gets a few inches a winter and that melts the next day. There have been a few years in which snow stayed on the ground for days and the entire city was paralyzed. But that, as I said, is the exception.
I’ve displayed here a few photographs of past Seattle snowfalls and winter views of the Cascades.
