There was a little snow in Seattle, last Friday morning.
Fun, how some moments can make each seasonal year unique. The light shed of snow blanketing the central areas of the Emerald City, leaving untouched areas covered until the later rains. Here, the snow was a rare thing. The last time was early 2011, in much grander amounts.
I snapped a few pictures, before heading north to the Ballard area. I wish I wasn’t so busy with important matters as I would have loved to explore the temporary changes. Still, are some moments I captured that morning.
The Space Needle area, of where I first noticed after my wake. Then, hurried to the Downtown area on other business, hoping for more. Much of the snow was washed away by the time I reached the Westlake Station area, but I managed to capture some evidence (as featured picture above).
Then, to an industrialized sector further north by the Ballard Bridge. Here, the snow still continued for another hour. I haven’t seen much snow in my lifetime. For me, the weather was wonderful for its difference, visual beauty and sudden peace brought to the surroundings.
