Snow!

It doesn’t happen here very often this early in the season, but it’s currently snowing! See this artist’s rendition:

 

(Artist’s rendition may not be 100% accurate.)

This isn’t prairie winter, mind you: this is Washington area snow, the kind where even a quarter-inch is enough to close schools and send panicked citizens scurrying to buy up all remaining supplies of milk and toilet paper. There’ll be mile-long backups on the Beltway before this is over.

I’m glad to be sitting quietly in a warm office, and I think I’ll make some hot chocolate. Later, when it dies down, though… comes dealing with traffic, and morons who won’t go above 20 mph even though they’ve lived here all their life and it snows at least once every single year. At least it isn’t sticking to the roads.

(Yes, I’m gently poking fun at PZ. Pompous Minesotan. Who does he think he is, lording it over us with his weather?)

  1. ZOMG, it’s snowing here too! What are the odds?!

    I’m glad to see that you have the same inclination to write about the first snow of the season that I do. I’ve been doing that for ten years now.

  2. What are the odds?!

    I make it out to be somewhat less than 10-150. OMG! That means this snow was designed! Oh, no, wait. I misplaced a decimal, is all.

    you have the same inclination to write about the first snow of the season that I do.

    Actually, it wasn’t the snow as much as the desire to parody that post by PZ. Which is probably the worst post of his I could’ve chosen to parody, but never let it be said that I always take the easy path. Or the path that makes any kind of sense.
