I'm sitting here moping. For the last twenty-four hours we've been under a Winter Weather Warning here in Raleigh and the forecasters were saying that we could see up to six inches of snow. I've not seen much snow in my life, so I woke up this morning more excited than a kid with a cupful of tokens at Chuck E. Cheese's and waited for the rain to change over to the white stuff. 10am...11am...noon...rain. Then around 3 I started seeing flakes but nothing was sticking. Snowed fairly hard for a while but just enough to coat the ground a little. Now it's 7pm and the snow is tapering off. Should turn cold and keep what we did get around for tomorrow but it'll take too much work to build up a snowman, though the writing in the snow that I've been looking forward to doing since yesterday should still be possible. Maybe we'll get lucky and another burst of the white still will come through and put us over the 1" mark, but I doubt it.
Anyway, I can't bear to look out the window anymore so I decided to play around on YouTube and came across this video of writer Silas House reading a tribute to Larry Brown. This took place at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in November. Reminded me that I still have to read A Miracle of Catfish. Honestly, I can't believe how long I've been saying that. Here's the video:
