For the record, it is only *now* officially winter...

But that hasn't stopped Syracuse from suffering under 6 feet of snow this autumn once again proving that nature cares nothing for mankind's arbitrary distinction between seasons.

I'll give that kid his due: while his R2D2 is missing rocket jets, it is way more creative than the all-too-ubiquitous monolithic snow penis which- fun fact- served as the Seal of the City of Syracuse until 1978.

All told, I'd love some snow down here in the Mid-Atlantic. Not Heathrow-closing, semi-apocalyptic levels of snow like those currently choking Europe at the moment... but a good couple of inches would really put me in the holiday spirit.

That's what she said! That's what she said!

Then maybe I can make my own Al Gore ice sculpture or snow Domo!
