Update II: It’s snowing again! Maybe we’ll get a four-day weekend:)
Update: Local filmmaker Chance Shirley captures the event better than I could hope to:
So it’s not as catchy as stars falling here, but still a notable event. It also gives me an opportunity to subject you to snow pictures along with some snow-themed poetry that I subjected my fellow classmates to in those snow-filled days at GMU. Enjoy or don’t:)

I believe I wrote this in college, but evidently didn’t publish it til law school, when I should’ve known better:)
by yours truly
Crunching softly under my feet,
Frozen cotton litters the street
On the path, it whirls and slithers.
Touched by sun, it melts and withers.
It is snowing!
Flakes are blowing!
Here and there as they scurry on their way.
It’s over now (and the same goes for the snow) and it will be awhile before i subject you, gentle readers, to more (i have more than you want to know).

Alright, kids, enough sweetness and light and puppies. Back to blocks of rant-filled text shortly…
