First Winter Snow 2014-15

After the intense snows of mid-November, resulting in snow days at both GVSU and WMU, December was... nothin. Totally month snowfall measured in tenths of inches. White Christmas forecast... and cancelled.

So the snow started Saturday night, first weekend of the new year. On and off during Sunday. 19°F in evening. 9°F when I went to bed at 2am., 8°F Monday morning at 6:45am. Everything looked like it was coated in white vacuum form plastic, but traffic on the road seemed to be cruising at reasonable speeds. 11°F at noon. I saw some blue sky from the bathroom at 1:20pm. I had thought of going out to take some pictures in the snow, but spent the day scoping out the effective Grand Rapids Press rate increase/service decrease. (sour-grin)

North murk 4:30ish on Monday, still snowing, but much lighter than earlier. (Click on photo for larger.)

Finally, snow. All week is supposed to be snow. Still don't know what the winter is looking like overall. But at least even if I was teaching I wouldn't have had to drive in this crap today, while West Michigan tries to remember how to drive -- there were a LOT of slide offs yesterday. Western doesn't start classes until next Monday the 12th.
