So, it decided to start snowing early this year. Not snowing in game, but actually snowing IRL in the middle of October. OMG it’s too early for snow. I had to drive to & from campus Thursday in a mix of slushy snow gunk, but fortunately, not too much stuck to the roads during the warmer part of the day. It’s supposed to keep snowing Thursday night & Friday, with up to a couple inches accumulating.
I know it doesn’t have anything to do with WoW, but seriously… I think the Lich King is making it snow a month too early… Isn’t everything Blizzard’s fault? The Californian in me still hates snow even after living through a couple winters in the North Eastern US.
Also, I take my comprehensive exam (written portion) in two weeks, so I expect things to be pretty crazy around here for a while.
UPDATE: About 4AM Friday morning (after I wrote the post), our neighborhood lost electricity (power came back around 10:30-ish). When it was light outside this morning, this is what I saw outside my back window:
And, yes, there are still leaves on a lot of the poor trees out here. There are branches falling all over town (I think it may have been tree branches that took out our house’s power). These ones seem to be hanging on okay, but you can tell there’s bright red leaves on the tree on the left here. The right tree had yellow & green leaves yesterday that you can’t even really see under the ice & snow. The garden we have on the side of the house used to have a couple flowering plants that went up to my knee, but those got squished & flattened by the snow in ways that I really hadn’t anticipated.
