This is the cozy Port Townsend, Washington, home of our son, Otto, and of his dear wife, Kristin. This photo was taken this morning by Kristin after last night's snowfall. Otto (husband) and I are here to celebrate Christmas with them and Granddaughter Anna. Anna has been studying drama in London with her Adelphi class this last semester, and we were all looking forward to seeing her yesterday. The storms across the country have put off her expected time of arrival in Seattle until tomorrow - a disappointment, but her late arrival will make our reunion even sweeter. She slept last night on the floor of the JFK terminal but tonight will be in the New York home of the grandmother of a simillarly stranded friend.
We Californians are unaccustomed to snow. Port Townsend has snowfall almost as rarely as Berkeley, situated as it is on the coast of Puget Sound in the rain shadow of the Olympics. Kristin also snapped these following pics of bird tracks in the snow and heather with snow caps.
The next photos are mine - the first showing why I hesitated to put my foot on the snow-slicked front stairs and the second, of shadows on snow, from inside a nice warm car.
I hope you are enjoying the season as much as we are! Have good fellowship and fantastic music and fun in the snow.
FLASH! A disappointed Anna has just phoned to say that her flight has been cancelled until Christmas Day!
