PEACE

I was teaching a class on the top floor of the Herning Kommune's office building (3rd floor by Danish standards; 4th floor in my world!) on Friday afternoon when something very special happened. It was just a few minutes before 12, just a few minutes before my course participants arrived..... when I looked out the window and saw this:
Then to add to the awesomeness of the moment, the clock hit 12 noon and the church bells of the Herning Kirke began to ring out..... As these huge snowflakes silently drifted from the sky with the serenade of the church bells behind them, it was, in my opinion, a perfect picture of PEACE.

Jealous indeed...I don't even have a window in my classroom this year, being in a biology lab again. But don't get me wrong, I am SO happy to have a better room for teaching art now!

Oh wow, how pretty! We weren't blessed with much snow, it more more slush and only lasted a minute. I keep hoping we wil see some snow before the winter is over, just not too much.

It looks like snow is coming later this year. Lilian, my friend in Denmark was also surprised by the lack of snow.

Beautiful! And not nearly as crazy weather as you mentioned before. Thought of you as I lugged Velveeta and Rotel back from Texas this week :)
