Snow Storm @ Seattle - Dec 20, 21 2008

The wind was not as bad as expected.... however, it snowed continuously over the last 48 hours. The result: 3 inches of snow in the city and upto 6 feet of snow around the state. (and still counting!!)

Sharing some moments from the two day storm, which is expected to hang around thru Christmas. Statistics reveal that this is the worst storm to hit the greater Seattle area in over 10 years!

Sunset @ Seattle

Here's a picture from a beautiful evening @ Seattle. The temperature was in the 20s... but the deep blue sky revealed these beautiful colors as the sun set.

Orange and White in action

Well, we didn't want to go thru the happy process of naming our new pets, the two fantail goldfishes, only to see them vanish from our lives in a short span of time. Goldfishes do have a decent life span... however, it is well known that most fishes die when you add them to a new aquarium.

So we simply decided to call them Orange and White... and they seem to like it too :)

P.S. No sounds.... hence no worries if you are viewing this from work/library/etc.... (thanks to my Olympus C765)

Eastern and Central Washington

Totally different from the cloudy weather and the lush of greenery you see in Western Washington.... yet, gorgeous in its own way!

Columbia River Gorge, Central Washington

Another long pending one.... clicked on our way back from Grand Coulee Dam.



Grand Coulee Dam, WA

I took my camera out of the case to click pictures of the colorful fall season, only to realize I missed to post this one (from our September trip).... oops!

The Grand Coulee Dam, located on the Columbia river in central Washington, is the largest concrete structure in the United States. In addition to producing up to 6.5 million kilowatts of power, the dam irrigates over half a million acres of Columbia river basin farm land and provides abundant wildlife and recreation areas.







We visited this place on our way back from Glacier National Park, and it was totally worth it. Too bad we could not stay back to watch the Laser Light Show... as we both had to get back to work the very next day.
