I was NOT dreaming of a white St. Patrick's Day!
Yes, this is today. More snow.
But there's hope. After three hours of steady snow, which thankfully did not accumulate on paved surfaces, it has finally let up. It's drippy, foggy, and 35 degrees. And the Weather Underground map shows clearing skies and just a few showers off the coast.
That's good, because today is day of the "Wearin' of the green", Sounders Rave Green that is! This evening we kick off the new MLS season here in Seattle, with flags and bands and giant tifo.
That means yards and yards of fabric displays. Son Jake is heavily involved with the Emerald City Supporters.. Tom will get to trot out onto the soccer field, carrying a big flag, as a representative of our North End Faithful supporter group. Opening ceremonies will be a big deal. We don't need no more rain or snow! We need a short break.
We know the rain/snow will be back tomorrow. It's written on the westerly winds.
In honor of St. Patrick's Day, Joan at The Retirement Chronicles posted a few 'green' photos. She runs an amateur photo contest each month, which I usually enter. This month the theme is GREEN, so I looked through my photo files from the past year to see what I could find.
Living here in the PNW there is always something green. I found a few. I haven't decided which one photo to enter yet, but here are a few not chosen.
HAPPY GREEN DAY!
May the luck be with those wearing green.
Hooray for Green!
