a light dusting on the palm tree. 

I despise snow. Although, I don't despise snow when it is in the mountains.

My hatred for the white fluffy stuff stems from college. I chose to go to Central Washington University because of it's location in Ellensburg. I wanted to experience seasons after growing up in the two seasons of western washington (rain and sunshine.)

My senior year  at CWU was the worst! My apartment was a mile from campus, every morning I had to walk in at least a foot of a mixture of compacted ice and fresh snow to campus at 7:30 a.m. After a long day of classes and work, I would walk home braving the re-frozen snow and ice. One night I remember being on the phone with my mom as I walking and I slipped on the ice and fell right on my butt. She laughed at me.

After four years you can see why I was done with snow and incredibly happy to move back to the climate controlled Seattle area. I came back because it rained. I love rain! You can still go places and you don't feel like your toes are going to fall off every minute your outside.

Long story short, it snowed yesterday. I'm not very happy right now.

snow starting to fall...

20 minutes later

At least over here it won't snow so much that I have to trek to my car and carve a path out to get out of the driveway. And I guess it would be nice to have a White Christmas for once.

*Update: I take back everything I said about snow being not so bad. It's the absolute worst. It started snowing hard at work after I wrote this post. I left a little early hoping that would help me get home faster. It took me two hours to get to the main road that leads to the freeway home. (It usually takes five minutes, I work in a populated city.) I ended up dropping my car off at a parking lot, hoping in a friends car and staying the night at their house. It still took another two hours to get to their house which is located about 15 minutes away from my office. 

My hatred of snow has grown and if given the chance I would definitely consider moving to a warmer climate. Luckily my prius to fantastic in the weather! I didn't have a single problem driving.
