Freezing Seattle

Holiday season is coming soon, but... what is this weather? Since the last week, Seattle has had snow storm. All flights in and out of Seattle have been canceled, and my friend has been stuck in Las Vegas. I have a lot of things to do in my office, but icy roads and heavy snow don't allow me to go out.

However, since I grew up in Shizuoka-prefecture, where rarely has snow, this snow storm is sort of exciting for me. I have never seen this much of snow falling from sky and roads covering by pure white. Also, this snow storm gave me a precious time. I'm staying at home, drinking my favorite Sen cha, and quietly seeing beautiful snow. (Of course, I'm doing some works in my home. But not that much.) During busy days, I haven't had much time to look out of window and thought how beautiful the nature is.

I do have to go to the office next week by any means, but now I'd like to enjoy this slow time and relax myself. At the end, I hope you all have happy and peaceful holiday with your family, friends, and loved ones.
