Peace in the East event that happened a little while ago at the university. The Islamic and Jewish student groups put on several displays and fashion shows, and here the belly dancer that is in the other local events was teaching people to do it. There weren't many people sadly, but like the other events, i only found out about it randomly. Some of the students were walking around the student center before telling people to come and have fun, but turn out was still pretty light. I'm still impressed that such a small university town (12,000 people or so) has events like this and Unity in the Community, where a city i lived in that was larger previously didn't. Still, i wish there was a better way to get the word out about these things.

Areas around here got over 20 inches of snow in basically half a day or so. It just came down so hard and fast, i could almost watch it pile up on the deck. I could also barely see the apartment buildings and grocery store that are about a block away. While the storm came down, i saw this squirrel and several birds trying to get at the food that was buried with the broken feeder. Most of the time he wouldn't pop his head up, so it was probably nicer under the snow, the wind was blowing pretty hard.

One of the reasons i haven't posted the past few days is i got that not so fun stomach bug that is going around up here. Nothing makes me want to do nothing like vomiting a lot, hopefully that wasn't too much information. So this picture of the snow is out my front door, as the sun was coming up
