Snow...

I am looking out my office window at a blanket of about three inches of snow. The ground is completely covered. The drive in today was amazing. The sun was rising, but the western sky was pink. The wet roads looked pink from the reflection. The trees, which are still quite colorful, had a dusting of white. To the north, there was an ominous dark sky. The combination of the sun, the pink, the trees, the snow, and the dark northern sky made for an eerily beautiful sight. Too bad I didn't have my camera. I did see one guy pull over and take a picture.

Dude, you're never going to win Megan's heart if you post pictures like that.

You need to win her over before you spring 2 foot icicles on her.

Damn, I wish you'd had your camera, too; bet it was beautiful. My part of the world is sunny and seventy; I'm working on a patio at my local coffee shop.

Holy shit. We've been having ferocious thunderstorms here and snow is expected this weekend. But man, we don't usually get iciciles like that til January!

You're lucky you're cuddly (I assume); otherwise, I'd seriously doubt your ability to snag a lady, even in your ski patrol uniform in that kind of weather.

Lulu- Better that she know now that snow is part of the package.

Just for the record, I was being a bit dishonest. That is a picture from last winter and those were the icicles at their biggest (before I knocked them down). There isn't THAT much snow yet. Sometimes I have to use stock footage to illustrate things.

I feel betrayed...

Sweet Jesus. It is 75 degrees and sunny here today.

What, just cause you're the guy I gotta make peace with snow? No fair.

I miss snow.

I hate California and it's stupid warmness.

I am ready for snow. I am from the North, and I must admit, do not particularly enjoy the heat. *Please don't hit me*.

"snow" is a 4 letter word. i can hardly imagine having SNOW before Halloween... Actually, I CAN-- the days of yore before the world moved on, it DID get cold on 'Weenie.

Now, it's often just fuckin' HOT on 'Ween down here in da' subby-tropics.
