It's SNOWING!

Look everyone! It's snowing!!!!



Seriously, look really, really closely. Ok, so you can't actually see it in this picture but it is snowing, technically. It's pretty much microscopic but it IS there. And, it is exciting enough that my entire department (about 8 or so of us) walked all the way up to the front just to watch it for a few minutes. Sad, huh? Will it accumulate? Not a chance, but it's excitement enough to send people up periodically to report back whether or not it can be seen with the naked eye from time to time. I bet the grocery store is already out of bread, and I wouldn't be surprised if at least one school district was closed already. (Seriously!!) The receptionist reports that from time to time an actual flake is visible. Woo hoo!! Maybe they will close down work (not a chance). What this boils down to is that my long run tomorrow morning is going to be CHILLY!! Bring on the gloves and headgear! (Hey Charlie, can you overnight your Ninja mask to me??)

I love that you are all so excited over a few flakes! Hopefully you will some more during your run to make the coldness more tolerable. If it is going to be cold, it might as well snow, right?

Your link is wrong. It says "Charlie" but it's pointed at Shoreturtle's website.

I think we need a better camera to see the snow. I didn't see any snow. This morning I woke up and we have about a half an inch on the ground...now the sun is out. That's Michigan for you

I'm sorry Rachel, but I just can't get excited. Oh, ok, I'll get excited for you!!! We still have snow piled up everywhere from last week's storm:)

The only time I felt cold weather it was like knives on my face, so right, don't forget the mask!!
After a while you will feel better, well is what everyone say as you get warmer!
Here, it is so warm!!

The Ninja stays in Jersey! Rae, I wanted you and B to check out my redhead comic blog friend, Opieblue, because I think he has a Pippen, but his is called Bug.

Heh, heh. Get your snowshovel out! I can mail you an ice scraper if you need it. :)

Hope you stayed warm on your run.

We're the same here if it snows - we all gather at the window to look!!! It doesn't snow here very often hence the novelty factor!

That reaction sounds just like D.C. !! and we actually do get occasional real snow. but still, the schools close if the word is even MENTIONED! I'm very excited for you!

Snow Day! Call out the plows and close the schools.
Let's all go run!
