Winter in Seattle

Today is the seventh day in a row that we have had daytime temperatures no higher than 35 &&d Fahrenheit. No big deal if you are used to Minnesota or Maine, but this is Seattle. Seattle supposedly has not had a winter like this, with snow on the grounds for days on end, since before I was born in the 1950’s.

If we get the expected snowfall this evening, it will have snowed four times in the past week. The kids haven’t been in school for over a week now as well, which means they have had seven days of class since mid-December. Still waiting to hear when they might finish this summer…

Many elements remain to be completed at this point, including the doors, windows, electrical fixtures, and hardware. So far most of the finishes look good, despite their specification and visualization from a few thousand miles away.
