How strange this weather has been

Thanks to Hurricane Sandy, we've had at least four inches of rain in the past 48 hours. We don't know how many for certain because the rain gauge iced over at some point in the night. We were told (though everyone around us was getting snow) that we would get terrible wind and lots of rain. I walked around in a daze last night, as if the constant drumming of the rain had hypnotized me. As the night grew darker, the silence came.You know, the sound of snow.

I am absolutely delighted by snow.

I am one of those people that thinks that driving out and about after a good snow is a WONDERFUL idea - yeah, the lapse in judgement is profound - because you have to get out there and see the world all covered up before it gets all drippy and footprint-ed.

Despite groaning of many a student, the university was open this morning and its back to work like normal.And still, I am absolutely delighted by snow.
