Snow day!

Well, not really, because I am here at the office. But tomorrow I might not be... the coworker I caught a ride to work with today has the day off tomorrow. So unless it quits snowing and the roads clear off, me and my aging honda with the bald tires will stay home. :)
We got 11 inches of snow in Bellingham yesterday. There's only about 6" outside my office (about 40 miles to the south), but it's still coming down thick & fast. All of this is more or less unheard-of for this time of year. November has been a strange month. I expect that quite a bit more snow fell out at the house than fell in town, but, well, I haven't been out there to check.
Since we aren't really used to snow (real snow, not just a skiff) around here, it's extremely disruptive. Schools are closed, at least 50% of the workforce stays home, and in general there's an air of excitement around even the most mundane things. It's a lot of fun, really.
And it's also really, really, really beautiful.

I am so jealous! There's no skiing yet here in New England, just a long lingering and waaaay too mild autumn.
