I JUST MADE A SNOWMAN!

er, a snowdog, rather. faetal and antialias did the snowcouple. hopefully, we'll have pictures ;)

in coming back from my lunch tonight at about 730, i saw a couple of snowflakes, teensy little ones, dancing lightly through the air. i figured that would be the snow they were talking about.

when we left at 930, only two hours later, well over an inch (maybe 2?) had fallen.

i will tell you. nothing. and i mean NOTHING. is nearly as hilarious as driving home with an Aussie that has never driven in the snow. we're driving in 1st gear.. people are driving around us.. she's leaning forward intently, apologizing out her window to every car that zooms by... "i feel like i'm taking a driving course! i turn up here? should i indicate?"

hilarity ensued.

in walking up to my apartment, i saw a couple about my age (and by 'my age', it can mean anywhere from 20 - 30 years old), walking through the parking lot and around the fence to go play in the park. as i walk up to my apartment, i'm thinking "are those two kids out making snowmen? aww! wait. are those my neighbors? wait! those are my ROOMMATES!"

so we played in the snow.

we ate the snow.

it was fun.

i had forgotten how.. quiet.. everything is when it's snowing. i had forgotten the alien beauty everything takes on under a layer of snow. i had forgotten how otherworldly it all feels, to just be outside and just.. be... in the snow.

tonight was a very peaceful night for me.

thank you, Mother Nature.

Just be mindful of the yellow snow.

Dude, snow! SNOW?! You are so lucky. And a SNOW DOG? That just kicks so much ass I cannot put it into words :)

You got some good roomies there, those willing to go out in the snow as adults and frollick are not so often found these days. We've got very little snow left from our last helping (2 1/2' three weeks ago) due to some abnormally warm weather but I do love looking out at the smooth covering of snow that takes over our backyard and street. In the moonlight its absolutely hypnotic, I could lose myself easily in the drifts... if I didn't have to think about digging the car out.

See, if you stayed in AZ you would have had to make a Sand Man.
