First Snow of 2010

I know that not everyone is thrilled to see snow falling in Seattle for the first time this year, but I am. The city has suddenly become a quieter and more peaceful place, and people have been forced outside to walk, rather than driving hither and yon. Chances are that all of this white stuff will be gone by Thanksgiving, perhaps even by later today. In the meantime, though, it’s a nice reminder that nature, not man, is really in charge of what goes on in the world.
