I guess we're in for it

The La Nina weather pattern is predicted for the northwest winter this year, and so far it seems to be right on.  We've had deluges of rain, wind (our power went out yesterday just long enough to make all of the clocks blink) and look what we had this morning.




I'm not super at photographing weather, but I think you can tell that this was snow.  It didn't stick, but came down for a couple of hours.  The temperature's around 35F, which is cool for this time of year, and it's supposed to get colder tonight and tomorrow.  We put the light on the rabbit cage today which keeps our little outdoor rabbit warmer and also keeps his water thawed.  He always looks so startled by the light when it gets dark; he hops around like he's onstage with a spotlight.  Since he's the oldest rabbit in the world, I guess it's keeping him young.

In other news, this week I feel like a real runner.  Last Monday I ran 8 miles in the rain, and today I ran 6 in the snow.  If my knee would just stop hurting, I'd be set.
