The cause of big flakes

The always excellent Capital Weather gang has a neat post up about what causes big flakes. I might have made the connection if I’d ever thought about it, but they spell it out: as neat looking as they are, large snowflakes are actually a bad sign if you’re a snow lover. They’re caused by above-freezing temps as the flakes fall, causing them to clump along the way.

Thus all the huge snowflakes yesterday, therefor the tremendous slush-fest it resulted in.

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.
