Today was a typical Seattle winter day. At least how I remember them. You can be out in the rain all day and never get wet. Damp yes, wet no. This is why many Seattleites eschew umbrellas.

We walked in the rain. A few errands, and dropped off our ballot in a ballot box. King County adds more ballot boxes every year, and ballots may be mailed with no postage affixed. This is what making voting easier looks like.

The most exciting thing that happened on the walk was the number of sirens and emergency vehicles we encountered. First it was 2 fire trucks and a medic responding to a location a few blocks off of our route. Then there were numerous police and state patrol vehicles whizzing around with lights and sirens. I figure there were at least 10, and we rather veered away from the roads they were traveling.

I took what I thought might be a nice picture of moss on steps, but apparently my phone disagreed and decided to not save the image. So I will share one from a few days ago, notice the sun.
