The snow has begun to fall.
While I'm not opposed to gorgeous, gorgeous snow in the winter-time, the first snow-fall symbolically represents the beginning of a stage of hibernation for me, and so it is a little sad.
It doesn't help to look at my post from a year ago.
But ... looking at two years ago makes me feel better.
Here's a pic from right now, just to keep the tradition going.
Luckily, I don't think this snow will stick around. The forecast seems to say that we'll be getting a little warmer this week, with some rain thrown in there for good measure. Looks like by next Sunday we may be back to snow, but a week is a long time for the weather to decide it wants to do something different.
Unfortunately, the forecast for tonight is coupled with this ominous looking graphic:
Those ice pellets look like they could put an eye out, non? I'll have to make sure to wear safety goggles if we go out tonight.
As for me, I've been cranking away at my major paper for Intellectual Property Law. I've got the introduction done, and I'm hammering away at the first section of background material, to set the stage for my analysis. I think if I keep this pace up, finishing on time will be a leisurely process. So much better than the last major paper I wrote for Natural Resources ... I definitely allowed myself to get a little too rushed with that one.
