But perhaps some people would not use the word wonderland. Unlike other cities that see snow almost all winter, it only snows once or twice here and barely any more than an inch or two. (I only own three legitimate sweaters for this reason.)
Well until recently. Seattle was hit with a storm that dumped 6 inches in our neighborhood and 10 to 12 inches elsewhere. Add in some ice, steep hills and only a few snow plows and the city shuts down-- completely.
I know other states are secretly laughing at us. And I'm thinking I need more sweaters.
(SIDE NOTE: I have a serious question for people who live in very cold climates... how do you deal with really cold weather? I'm freezing and it's 28 degrees! I can't imagine 10 degrees, or heaven forbid, -3. Do your eyes freeze? These may be silly questions, but I'm honestly very ignorant about this.)
Also, the doggie went in for a little surgery this week and he's wearing a cone of shame and generally feeling miserable, which makes me feel miserable.

*despite me being a journalism major in college with a copy-editing class under my belt and a penchant for accurate grammar usage, there are some words I can never spell the first around. Recommend is one, definitely is another. Just thought you should know. :)
