Getting to Know Seattle: Lightly Frozen Green Lake

When Lily and Gloria visited Seattle, I took them to one of my favorite walking spots, Green Lake. Now, in a cold spell unusual for this area, Green Lake has a skim coat of ice — something Lily and Gloria have never seen. I sent them these pictures, so they can imagine.

They understand “ice”, although they’ve never seen a frozen body of water. The hardest thing to explain is what snow feels like — they are fascinated by snow. The closest I can come to something they know is shaved ice, which they get to eat sometimes at festivals. But soft, powdery snow isn’t anything like shaved ice, is it?
