First white

It's not as if I haven't seen it before, but I still experience a childlike flash of wonder when I see winter's first snow dusting the city, as I did this morning when I walked down to try and grab my Sunday Times from the lobby. Now it feels as if winter has officially begun.
As a sidenote, damn you anonymous newspaper thief who keeps taking my weekend paper. One of these days I'll catch you in the act, and won't you be sorry when I show you how I roll, yo, the Chicago way.
