More Snow!

Here are some more photos from our bizarre weather day. Just for some background, the last time New Orleans saw snow was on Christmas day 2004, and before that, it was 1989. This is the earliest major recorded snowfall in New Orleans ever. People were going pretty crazy here, calling family and friends and standing outside in the snow looking as confused as if the four horsemen of the apocalypse had arrived.

I also heartily recommend looking at the amazing footage assembled by the Times Picayune here, WDSU here, and the BBC (we're international, baby!) here.

Oh, in case anyone is wondering, it is currently 64 degrees at 10:03 pm.

More streetcar!
