First accumulating snow of 2007! On Jan 16!

It's about time, I was sick of rain!

Oh, you wouldn't be saying that if you'd been in Puget Sound for the last few weeks.

Go away, darn it. NO MORE SNOW! NO MORE ICE! We DEMAND rain.

I'm afraid the only snow I'm seeing is when I watch the news reports every night out of Denver.

I got to play EMT this morning when two cars crashed into each other in front of my place of work. Kinda fun except for the cold.

Snow here too. Sweet.

It was weird. I got out of bed to hit the snooze button and thought "gee, it's actually reasonably warm in here" (our house has bad insulation). Glanced out the window. "Oh...insulation."
