lake washington - morning commute.

This a shot from the bus to the lake. The bridge floats on top of the lake, when it's windy the lake washes over the bridge. It's impressive, the roiling green water throwing itself in front of vehicles.

Crazy Cherry Tree

I took this picture on December 13. This tree blooms at the weirdest times of year, we usually notice it in the winter months. I don't quite understand what the survival advantage of this is, since there aren't that many bugs around to fertilize it and greedy squirrels eat the buds.

Thus Leigh and I make fun of it as we pass by. We say "Stupid tree!" "hey moron, it's january!" We are cruel that way. The tree is stoic and unresponsive, typical for the Nordic character of the city.

We were really cozy at home, after getting starch overload at a great Salvadorean place in White Center. We ate too much. Snow started to fall in thick, sopping clumps. We mastered the weather easily and braved the snowy, slippery hills to slide down to the YMCA to work off at least one of those tasty Salvadorean pupusas.
