How is the weather!?

It snowed yesterday in Austin. It was beautiful. The sun was shining brightly through the trees in the backyard - the snow was falling softly on the grass. My roommate, John, grabbed his acoustic guitar and started walking around the front yard singing "Walking in Winter Wonder Land".... the snow lasted only ten minutes, but it was magical....

What is not magical, is that it is 19 degrees in Austin this morning and our heat is not working - Freezing! We are wandering around the house in winter hats, boots, an sweatshirts.... I am camped out underneath a heating pad right now....

What is happening - Is an iceage taking place right now? Is 2012 upon us already?...

CNY- Grey(As usual) About 30 right now. Compared to what you woke up to this morning, a veritable heat wave. They keep saying the snow is coming, but it has not arrived yet.

Something to think about: Isn't it funny that from Thanksgiving to Christmas, snow is cute, nice, makes you feel good. Then from day after Christmas through the rest of winter, snow is awful. Talk about Jekyll & Hyde.

Not quite so bad up here, but there is the whole scraping off ice on the car some mornings thing. Also doesn't help that my apartment only has single pane windows. haha. Last year round this time there was a huge snow storm that basically shut all of Seattle down for a week, so I'm hoping there's no repeat of that.

Stay hot! ;)

So much for that global warming thing, eh?

We got a light dusting in Knoxville on Saturday, but it had pretty much melted away by the afternoon. The nice thing was it was great for snowballs after it got slushy. Packed really well and heavy enough to get some good speed before hitting.

Hopefully, everyone will forgive me in a week or so.

If it makes you feel better, it's stinkin' hot here in Oz.
