Oh, New England weather.

It was predicted that it would rain Wednesday night and then turn to snow all day Thursday with accumulations of 10-20 inches. It did indeed rain (conveniently holding off until after i had returned home from an extra-long RCFOS session) and i didn’t see white stuff until i was heading out for my 3pm class. The air was thick with clumps larger than i think i’ve ever seen, falling down like when someone rips open a feather pillow in the movies. In class i watched the old-fashioned roof of the adjacent building turn white and watched the snow swirling around the trees, eventually settling down and furring the black tree branches. It wasn’t that cold out, so the walkways were rather slushy, but they’re quite snowed by now, and i’m happy.

We had Red Velvet Cake and Tea. Earl Grey. Hot. at seminar.
