    Default OT: Spring snow


    I looked out the back windows a bit ago, and big fat flakes were
    falling. Then the sun, partway down, broke through and lit up the
    falling flakes. And then it was gone.

    It's been spitting snow off and on since I woke up this morning. Those big
    flakes were beautiful this afternoon. I wish it would be gone permanently.

    I'm sitting here next to an open window. Ambient temps have been hovering
    around 70F for days now. It's been sunny with clear blue skies (a few
    cirrus clouds drifting around) during the day and a big bright moon shining
    at night above trees draped in Spanish moss. Don't hate me

    OB Food: Spanish moss is related to pineapples. Go figure.

    You should see how many things are related to roses.
