Here's the view from our front door this morning at 4:30am - you can see the white on the ground. Yesterday was the first snowstorm of the season, which canceled quite a few events in our area as people hunkered down to stay off the roads and inside from the nasty weather.
But it's already melting, so it's just our first glimpse of winter. My kids are hoping for a white Christmas this year - we missed a white Christmas last year, since we were visiting my folks in California for the holidays, although I heard it snowed in Connecticut on Christmas Eve. Here's hoping for a repeat!
I'm a bit late posting this, as the issue came out last week - but both my dad and I have been published together in an issue of Bewildering Stories! My dad wrote an awesome essay entitled "Danger, Will Robinson!" that talks about the trends in safety and robots. My fiction story, "Finale Fortissimo," had fewer robots, but no less danger - in the main character's case, a robot might have helped a bit.
Both these two pieces and lots of other great work appear in Bewildering Stories' Issue # 784, so I hope you check it out!
