Seattle has been under an inversion for the past few days and many residents have been complaining about an odor associated with the ground-clinging fog. It seems to have affected the low-lying downtown area the most, but this morning, upon stepping out to walk the dogs, I noticed that here in Lower Queen Anne it smelled like Lewiston, Idaho. And it isn’t money.
I began the year 2013 watching the ball drop in Times Square, New York City. I began the year 2014 watching the glow of the light show over The Bund, in Shanghai. I began the year 2015 watching fireworks shoot from the Space Needle, in Seattle. It’s been an interesting few years. 2016? Maybe gazing at the Eiffel Tower, in Paris, or watching a 17 foot foam potato drop in Boise, Idaho? too soon to say.
