The loom

Those of you in snow country know what I am going to talk about.

When it snows heavily at night, the sky actually lights up.  Because the air is filled with white snowflakes any light present at the ground is reflected back from the sky... it literally makes it look like the sky is glowing.

Post apocalyptic?
I took this Tuesday nite when it was snowing heavily in Seattle.  You'll have to trust me that it was snowing; the long exposure blurred out the flakes.  So use your imagination to fill the air with snowflakes - but I did get the loom.  It is tinted reddish because the lites up in the parking lot (a quarter mile away...) are sodium vapor lites that have that nasty orange tint that does so much for your healthy skin tone.

Since we already have your imagination running, add the hiss of snowflakes on the deck above.  Too bad those Christmas lites are all put away...
