i love the hush of a fresh snowfall. good thing it's beautiful, cuz it sure gnarls up traffic for seattlites. i thank my lucky stars for my dad's relentless driver's education in icy traffic conditions (erica! steer in the direction of the skid!), my jeep liberty (aka the Jiberty) and my time well-spent commuting to sundance ski resort on a perilous winding 2 lane road with a gambling drop on one side to the creek below in blizzards of all shapes and sizes. here's to 4wheel drive and many more snow storms.
