A Beautiful Snow

Last year we didn’t get any snow at all in Raleigh, so I really hoped for at least one or two this year. My wish has been granted: the last snow kept me home with the boys, but this one I could drive to work in and really enjoy in a different way. It was beautiful; I could see the line of the storm front and the blue sky beyond our clouds — the quality of light was astonishing and I wished I had my camera. Local Dave Johnson, known on Twitter as @snoopdave, did have his camera this morning:

Incidentally, it’s supposed to be 70 degrees by Saturday. I love North Carolina.

    Our only “snow” came in the form of a light sleet in mid December. Since then the temps in Austin have ranged from freezing to a record high of 90 just the other day. Hope y’all get to enjoy it while it lasts.

    We hardly ever get snow in West Tennessee. This year we’ve had two. One on January 29 and the other this past weekend. We had 4 inches in our yard, while some of our friends 30 miles north got over a foot. It’s almost all gone already though and we are supposed to have 70 degree weather by the weekend here as well.
