When Liquid Sunshine Turns to Snow

Washington State is known far and wide as the “Land of Liquid Sunshine.” In other words, it rains a lot up here–especially during the winter months. From November through April, if you’re traveling anywhere near the Pacific Coast, you’re sure to get soaked by a downpour or two. Even as far inland as the I-5 corridor!

But Washington also gets a good amount of snow, as all those living on the eastern side of the state can attest. Snow shovels? Ice scrapers? Indispensable! Unless, of course, you plan on staying holed up inside until spring thaw.

These two photos were taken in Spokane, WA, after a typical mid-winter snowfall. Local photographer Randall Harris happened to glance out his window one afternoon just as the snow was tapering off. Grabbing his coat and camera, a Nikon D-60, out the door he went.

The images he captured that day are incredible! You can almost feel the cold nipping at your fingers and toes as twilight settles in. Thanks for sharing, Randy!
