Don't be fooled. Inside this thin coating of sweetness is a fiery core of total insanity.

First Snow Fall

I woke up this past Sunday morning to see snow falling outside. That was a shock. I knew it was supposed to get down into the 30s overnight, but I didn't think the rain would turn to snow. I told a still half-asleep Nigel it was snowing and he said "Ha ha." I used The Voice on him and then he knew I wasn't joking.

I checked the weather online, and it looked like within a few hours it would turn back to rain, so I got dressed and hurried outside to take some photos. It was already turning slushy.
