I was amazed when I went to leave for work yesterday: There was snow falling! The day before had been really rainy and warm. Crazy weather! We got an awful lot of rain on Tuesday:

Wednesday, as I was driving home, I looked in my rear view mirror and saw this sight:Can you see the snow on the mountains? Gorgeous. It looks like you can just reach out and touch them. (In real life, of course!)
My schools are getting ready for the holiday. In one of my schools, my room is off of the auditorium. When I leave the auditorium to go down the hall, this is what greets me:

I don't think you can tell it in this picture, but the snow at the bottom has been smeared. The girl who did it said it was her hoodie that wiped it. Sure it was, because you're 2 feet tall and that's exactly where your hoodie would've hit. So then she changed her story: there was a string on the board she was trying to get off. She should write fiction.
Anyway, this bulletin board belonged to the teacher who has the gingerbread house over her doorway. And, when I walked into her room today, this is what I saw:
It's so festive in her room! She (well, her TAs anyway!) is going all out this year.
What are some the decorations in your workplace or around your town?
