fascinating day

All the things.

Today started with a bit of snow. Big flakes. Quiet morning. I made a couple of images, here and here, recently so it didn’t make sense (to the pre-coffee me) to make more photos of…well…snow.

I-5 and I-90 closed earlier today after a propane tanker over-turned. The SPD evacuated homeless camps and extinguished their campfires.

As born and raised in Chicago Karen would say, “You’re gonna have that.”

Some time later, actually 3:20 p.m., I noticed the light had changed and looked outside the window.


Suffice to say: the city was not pleased. Significant traffic, generally crazy.

The video below captures the flash of the lightning strike that hit the Space Needle this afternoon.

Waiting for a bus that, as you read this, still isn’t there.
