Baby's First Snow!

Okay, I am not referencing anything more than a stereotype for the excitement I'm feeling being akin to that which new parents surely feel at all their child's firsts. This is not a reference to "Dirty Dancing" or to any existence of a baby of my own. I am the baby in that title. And it is not actually my first snow. But it is my first snow as a New Yorker. And mambo-jambo, did I ever love walking to work through it. Upon getting to work, mind you, I was jadedly reminded by coworkers that "That's not snow. Wait til your first blizzard." Chya, I can't wait!

Anyway, this snow was most thrilling to me because the temperature dropped so drastically between Sunday and today. Sunday brought with it rains that were torrential but air that was in the 50's all day. Turn around two days later and there's snow flurries and finally actual snowfall overnight, and today it's 20 degrees with a windchill factor putting us in 9 degree weather. That's right! This Southern California girl walked to work, ostensibly, in 9 degree weather! Oh, you are too kind, please, please, hold the applause, it's getting embarrassing.
