Snow. Pray for it.

Let us, o’ North Central Washington, turn our collective mental energies skyward. As we have said before at this chilling time of year, let us invoke the deity in whichever form you prefer. Let us file the request wherever it can be filed. We need snow. We need snow to cover our mountains and fill our valleys. We need snow to nourish our forests and stave off their combustion. We need snow to fill our canals with life-giving moisture, to be absorbed in our fields and orchards, those that feed us and feed the world and sustain our industry and economy. We need snow to fill our rivers to nurture vital runs of salmon and steelhead. We need snow transformed into liquefied solar energy, to turn our turbines, to make the power that gives us warmth and light, that runs our industries and makes possible high-speed wi-fi.
