Let It Snow! (early)

Friday, October 9th, 2009

Holy cow! I’m used to snow in Montana, especially earlier than you’d expect, but the earliest I remember seeing it was about a week before Halloween. Usually it’s merely a few light flakes here and there. Imagine my surprise this morning when I was eating breakfast and thought the pattern thrown on our lawn by the porch light was a bit too bright and white. I looked out the window and — sure enough! — there was a blanket of snow covering everything.

I grabbed some quick pictures after the sun came up because I wanted to try Carrie’s camera at full size (so very close to 8 megapixels). I think they came out okay. These were taken during our rush to work, so I didn’t try to do anything artsy. I just wanted to capture the moment. And what a moment! I’m going to have fun shoveling tonight…

You know it’s spring at UM…

Current Listening: Good Riddance – “There’s No ‘I’ in Team” (Bound by Ties of Blood and Affection)
You can write your congressmen / And fucking spit in the wind / For all the good it’ll do you friend

… when the hippies are walking on those damn tightrope things and the preppy kids are strumming Dave Matthews Band songs in the oval.

Gimmie winter back.
