    Nov 18, 2008, 4:43 PM - Winter has landed in Korea! #1

    Greetings from Korea! Last night got our first snow of the winter season here at Kunsan Air Base.
    I started working swing shift this week, and around 3 or 4 in the afternoon, we started getting some flurries. Which kept getting heavier and heavier. When I walked home close to midnight, it was beginning to stick on the paved surfaces.
    I woke up this morning to go outside for my morning nicotine fix (yeah, yeah. . . no comments, please! :o) and what to my wondering eyes should appear????
    It's STILL coming down! Got quite a good bit of accumulation already. It's weird. My last base was in Tucson, AZ so I'm just not used to seeing snow!
    These are from the 3rd floor landing of my dorm.





    Here's the cross streets by my building.



    Look out! It's a tired, cranky Wampa!



    Here's an idea of how much we've gotten overnight! Sheesh. . .



    Kinda pretty. But getting to work is gonna be something of a pain.

    Looks a fair bit like London too :P I hate this level of snow though... it's just all wet and mucky. Doesn't get fun till we have 4 feet of the stuff, can go tobogganing, skating, snowboarding, snowball fights... ah, winter's fun

    Hey Scott, if you end up coming to Boston this weekend you just might see some. It's been real cold this week and they're predicting a flurry or two this week. It'd be our first of the season.

    I remember back when I lived in Texas and if there were even flurries the schools called a snow day

    I'm surprised how little snow we've gotten around Denver so far

    You should come out to Boston this winter then... We'll show you all the snow you want!

    A friend of mine is living in Jindo right now (teaching ESL classes). She was posting all these cute pictures of Jindo puppies in the snow...

    Haha weird. We don't have snow days unless theres 3 feet of snow on the roads :P Mind you, that happens pretty frequently. The wonders of being in the snowbelt, eh?
