Welcome to 2014, here have a foot of snow

We got sent home early from work today. I'm glad they let us go before the driving got any worse. It's bitterly cold outside, and the snow is incredibly fluffy. Every snowflake that hit my windshield was one single crystal of ice. Even with the defroster on, they didn't melt. I could see that perfect, six-fold symmetry in every snowflake, and it was beautiful. It put me in mind of the crystallography course I took in grad. school, which I really enjoyed.
