  • Snow Day at Fort Casey and Ebey Landing

    Valerie Collymore, paint-out facilitator, called me early Saturday morning to report that it was snowing on her way to the Mukilteo ferry. Snowing? I looked outside; there was blue sky at my house. Valerie decided to proceed since the weather report predicted better weather. But when she couldn't get off the Clinton Ferry dock because of a downed power line, and we now had reports of heavy snow in Coupeville, we decided to cancel the Paint-out. Too late for five or six valiant souls who had already made their way to Fort Casey. They stayed and painted snow scenes! The snow stopped, the sun came out and a few more painters braved the weather. Those who stayed the night had an enjoyable dinner together in Coupeville with lots of stories to tell.

    The next day promised dryer weather but it was still very cold. Snow iced the ground for twelve hearty painters bundled up to face the chill. By noon it was warmer and the sunshine was welcome. I'd always wanted to try a snow scene so I was happy to find a good spot on the way to the ferry for my last painting of the day. Standing in the snow in the shade, it was chilly. By 4:00 pm the temperature started to drop noticeably. I finished up and headed home. All-in all we had a wonderful day in a beautiful spot. Thank you Susan McManamen for hosting this event.
