We had a significant snowfall on Thursday, causing the university to cancel classes for the afternoon. As luck would have it, I had already driven in to work. Meanwhile, the snow had piled up outside, making the drive home tricky. The temperature has not risen above freezing in several days, and those places that do not get any sun, like the alley behind our apartment building, are now covered in about six inches of solid ice. It still looks pretty, though. Heidi has posted some more pictures of KC snow, this time from just a block or two away from the apartment. The second and fourth pictures are of a giant needle, thread, and button that commemorate the fact that this part of town was “the garment district” back in the day.
