And Now For Something Completely Different....

This is something you don't see every day, not at roughly 32degN/93degW in northwestern Louisiana.  And it was pretty much unexpected.  As late as yesterday afternoon, to my knowledge there had been no hint of it coming this way.  But snow it did, like crazy there for a while between about 6 and 8 pm.  And the reaction was about as depicted here:

It accumulated pretty quickly.  By about 8:00, my eighteen-year-old son and his friend were sledding down the hill behind the friend's house, toward the Cane River.  We didn't know about it until afterward!  As he said, most everybody's a kid around here when it snows.  Luckily neither one of them took a dunk.  

Everything is shut down, pretty much.  Including the University, in what for me is a "wasted" Snow Day since I don't have classes on Fridays this semester anyway....  Not that I can complain.  This was a short week anyway, what with Martin Luther King, Jr., Day on Monday and Jury Duty on Tuesday (not selected and released by the end of the day, but only after about eight hours of excruciating boredom listening to the same questions being asked and answered over and over and over and over and over again of each of the prospective jurors!).

"Everything is shut down" ... except the hospital, so my wife does not get the day off, unfortunately.
