It Snowed

It snowed!  Started around 11am and snowed continually until just a few minutes before 5pm.  A lovely soft peaceful snowfall. 

I told Token he was an Oregon dog now.... he went out and at first stayed close to the car.


After muttering wuss under my breath (and snapping these pics from the protection of the covered porch ) he was soon out and in the snow covered grass.  His short legs had him scampering back into the house as soon as he was done.

NASA Johnson Style is a volunteer outreach video project created by the students of NASA's Johnson Space Center. It was created as an educational parody of Psy's Gangnam Style. The lyrics and scenes in the video have been re-imagined in order to inform the public about the amazing work going on at NASA and the Johnson Space Center.

"NASA Johnson Style" Lyrics:

NASA Johnson Style
Johnson Style

Welcome to NASA's Johnson Space Center
We are coming in hot so don't burn up as we enter
We do science everyday that affects your daily life
Throw them up for manned space flight

Science everywhere
As we engineer the marvels
That fly though the air
And take us way beyond earth's levels

Science everywhere
Because we engineer the marvels
That fly though the air
Flys us through the air

Control the mission out of Johnson
This is ground, hey!
And this is space, hey!
Tell me Houston what's the problem
It's okay!
It's okay!
Because there's flight controllers on the job today

Science microgravity, revolves around the earth
