Woah! Snow! Whiteout!

We watched the incredibly wondrous election results as streaming video, coming off my tablet computer onto a video monitor. It was snowing outside. I went to bed after Pennsylvania put the election in place-- I'd hardly slept the night before.

It was only supposed to be a snow shower, but in the morning we were totally snowed in, about 2 1/2 feet, had no internet all day yesterday, and electricity off for about half the day as well. We're still snowed in today, but the snow melted off the satellite dish.

Such good news, so proud of the electorate in this country, brings you to tears.

Yes, it looks lovely.
It's pretty toasty back in Los Angeles.
Is Molly puzzled by the snow? Or is she right at home in it?

Beautiful snow (high 70s here this week!). Yes, I too was teary: amazing how something patriotic can get to you, seeing people happy and pulling together (and amazing evolution since my school wasn't integrated till 4th grade).
