i walked out of my classroom to pick my kids up from music. before i got there, swirling, whiteout conditions dumped at least a quarter inch of the white stuff. we went out for recess 45 minutes later, it had subsided. by the time school got out, it vanished, like keyzer soze.
recipe for snow (according to the locals, mostly young'uns):
1) wear pajamas inside out.
2) flush an ice cube down the toilet.
3) perform a snow dance immediately before going to bed.
the first two, easily done. that third one though, i may need some coaching.
