My regular readers may remember that I lucked into a surprise viewing of the Aurora Borealis this last May while housesitting for my aunt in Ellensburg. That experience, as magnificent as it was, didn’t let me consider it a done deal. Nope. It made me want more!
On Friday I arrived in Ellensburg to house sit for my aunt for a week, my first vacation in two years. The normally two hour drive ended up taking just under four hours, and today’s post was going to be about an unplanned sidetrip to Snoqualmie while attempting to avoid part of a hideous traffic jam on I-90.
But on Saturday night at around 11:30 pm, as I was checking my Facebook feed after a strenuous day of reading and dozing, I read a post from meteorologist Scott Sistek that the Aurora Borealis was visible. And here I was away from the city!
