Finally. Finally, finally, finally we got some snow today. I do not apologize for my excitement - I am a southerner and we don't get to see this very often. It started around three this morning and by the time we woke up it was starting to accumulate. The college was among the places with delayed openings (a lot of places closed for the whole day which is a little much in my opinion), so we spent some time playing outside like dorks. Of course the camera was there too.
The smallest snowman in the world with one arm longer than the other:

Please excuse the no-makeup and bad roots - I was too excited to groom for the occasion.
Pathetic accumulation but accumulation all the same:
And finally, leaving for work today in the Artic Circle:
Thank you, Mother Nature. I realize that for this to happen here the cold mountain air has to mix with the wet ocean air, the ground has to be cold enough to let it stick, Mars has to align with Jupiter and all that shit, but I'm really happy it all came together so nicely. I wish it would stick around awhile.
