BENCH BLANKETS…

My Reader probably heard the rumour?

The rumour that all the weather men in the Pacific Northwest finally got it right?

Rain, snow, sleet, ice, winds, blizzard conditions, freezing rain, more snow, resulting in driving hazards, walker nightmares…slips and slides on wheels and heels.

Weather conditions we don’t usually get…we received with a vengeance. All in three days. Plus, they say, just the one more. Predictions say it will all be gone by Monday morning, leaving  long-winded weather conversations with friends and strangers; images of cross-country skiers using city surface streets as unlikely playgrounds; and neighbourhood inclines as future Olympic one-man sled qualifiers.

And…benches covered in white velvet…

“I often lay on that bench looking up into the branches. It was particularly fine at night with the stars above.”  Georgia O’Keeffe, American artist
