Snow day!

After several other parts of the state got snow this winter, it was finally our turn for some. It was fun while it lasted! And I'll take it over those nasty ice storms any day.

Here's a short video of the snow from last Tuesday. This was shot from the roof of my building during one of the heavier snowfalls.



I've also uploaded a few photos to Flickr too.

This was the historic first flight of a female commander, Colonel Eileen Collins whose crew released the Chandra X-Ray Observatory.

I think this might be a fragment from the Barringer Crater in Arizona, but unfortunately I don't have a good photo of the information plaque so I can't be sure.

These are making me very impatient for New Horizons to get out there!
