Well, this snowblows

The lab and I just returned this morning after driving all night from a several day conference in Florida. As we were whittling down the last hour on the road, the sun rose on a fresh layer of snow in presently 14 F air:



Tuesday in Orlando was the best day with temps in the low 70's and sunny with no humidity--felt like a May day. Shorts and t-shirts. And it was my first time in a tropical area. There was still plenty of green in January.

Just 18 hours ago, the sun had set on scenes like these:



the beach at dusk



the Kennedy Space Center




and an anonymous field in the middle of Florida.

It was a conference and expo so there was nothing to take pictures of in Orlando, unfortunately.
