Actually, it’s melting now.
But here is a quick chronicle of the past week:
Dec. 13th. The snow had just started, and we all expected it to last a day or two.
Dec. 16th. The snow was sticking; it was in the 20s all day; we were making shallow snow angels.
Early in the morning of the 16th – I’m off to SoCal. That’s another whole story in itself. The bus stop seems to be on the surface of the moon.
The 20th. It’s been a full week of snow by now. But more is to come …
Downtown, Dec. 22. Almost deserted – I’d guess that 15% of the mall stores were closed. But not, mercifully, the Sanrio store!
Today the snow is piled up more than a foot deep and the temperatures have risen – snow is turning to slush, icicles are melting. I’ll miss the snow. It hardly impacted our lifestyle, considering we walk to everything and I’m off work. I just wish I’d made a decent snowman.
I hope your Solstice was transcendent and your Christmas eve will be magical. I’ll post pics of tomorrow’s morning mayhem ASAP.
