snow daze

We had another snowy week here in the Puget Sound – here are some photos from our place. On Saturday night, the temperature dipped to 21°F, and with no new precipitation but plenty of moisture in the air, we awoke to the most spectacular ice crystals on everything. It looked like all leeward surfaces were covered with white, magnetized iron filings, and the magnet was on.



our lovely japanese maple with a jacket of sunlit snow and ice....



we brewed beer on sunday, which of course, requires the consumption of beer. not often in seattle are you able to store the beer in a pile of snow....
