And then it snowed (again).

Late November 2006 we had a snow storm that pretty much brought the Bellevue/Redmond area to a stand-still.

It’s now January 2007 and we’ve had another snow storm – here’s the view from the reception of building 117 (the building without any floppy disks!).

I had to drive from the Microsoft Campus to Bellevue after work (and then on to home), the trip from Redmond to Bellevue only took two and a half hours! – here’s a view from the car of the central reservation and a massively long queue of cars stuck on 148th.

And a snow laden tree – after the recent wind storm I expect there will be some more branches down overnight with the weight of the snow…

Today started with an interesting morning (the floppy disk exercise) and finished with a short, but long drive home.

Seattle weather, just got to love it, at least we’ve not had an earthquake for a while…

    I arrive at 4AM on Sunday at SEATAC for CE 6 TTT, via Honolulu.  We’ve had 100 degF here this week and ranging wildfires.  (It snowed on the wildfires on Christmas Day!)

    Oh.. its going to be a shock!

    Guess I’ll pack my thermals in my hand luggage.

    Hi Mike

    Having moved from UK to USA you have obviously decided to steel our snow. A lot of the Alps had green landscapes or slush instead of snow. So happy skiing over there. At somebody can go!

    oh, and the good news it that we’re expecting another 1-3 inches tomorrow morning!
