Well this was a bit of a shocker. When we woke up on Monday morning, we were shocked to see snow covering everything. I must say that snow was not something we expected to see. So I got out my camera and took a couple of photos and uploaded them to flickr, thinking that the snow would quickly vanish leaving the green grass that is still around here. But the snow didn't stop. Over the next three days, we would get several real, honest to goodness flurries. Including a day where I saw some of the fattest, fluffiest, snowflakes I think I had ever seen. So for a place that doesn't get snow, we not only had a morning of snow, we had several days of it!
Like Vancouver (which has a very similar climate to Dublin), the snow made city grind to a halt. On Monday morning, the shuttle bus crawled down the M50 to work making me pretty late. And then last night, the shuttle just didn't run between 5:30 and 8:30pm to take us away from work. In fact, even taxis weren't willing to come down to the office to pick people up, saying it was "not worth sending" them.
So that night after wrapping up work, we settled into an impromptu games night and played several games. I'm really enjoying one particular game called Race for the Galaxy. So that was pretty fun.
We've packed our bags -- if you haven't heard, we're going to be in e-town for about a week. We're gonna try and see as many people as we can, but it's going to be an awfully full week. So if we don't fit in time for you, we're sorry. You'll just have to come visit us in Dublin sometime!
