Queen Anne's Hill Seattle

We are having a "Winter Storm" here in the PNW. Our last significant snowstorm was six years ago. So let's just say not a lot of work was accomplished here. In the spirit of joy people congregated at Queen Anne's hill to sled and have a bit o fun. In the hundreds or thousands. No way could you drive up or down this area. So people were sliding and partying untill the local constabulary closed the hill to sliding. The city brought in extra trucks to sand and gravel the hill that was the focal point of too much merriment. The hill did manage to claim multiple broken bones over the day there were several broken arms and twice as many broken legs. Still a good time was had by many!

I'm jealous. We've got the cold here, but no snow. I love it when an entire region just shuts down for a day from snow. Of course, then it turns all muddy and slushy and all that crap flies on your winshield...but that's tomorrow!

Thanks for the comment on my blog....we've had hideous snow to rival your "rice krispies", and some rain to turn it into a giant municipal Slurpee. Greetings from the Canadian Southwest.
