Well, winter is here! Yay! Snow!

The drive in this morning was slow, but, remarkably, most drivers seemed to be dealing with it well - driving at speeds appropriate to road conditions and being patient. I only passed one accident on the way in, and traffic was flowing around it sanely.

For those who don't like snow, relax. I can almost guarantee that it will be gone by next Wednesday.

You see, I love snow. I was born during a blizzard. As a boy, I used to draw a little snowman on the calendar a few days before my birthday, because I wanted there to be snow on the ground by then. It has been a long time since there has been snow on the ground on my birthday. Odds are, the weather will change and it will melt, with the 28th a grey and murky brown day. Rain would not surprise me.

On the other hand, if there's actually snow on the ground then, Imma make me a snowman.
