Yesterday afternoon everyone was really excited about the few snow flakes that fell from the sky.  But this morning we were shocked to wake up to about 6 inches of snow.  And it kept snowing all day.  Apparently the snow only lasts for a few days, so we'll see what happens.   click here to see more  photos

But... but you're south of me! And I haven't seen a single flake! This can't be happening!

So are you enjoying your ondol [heated floor]? I used mine for the first time today and I must say that my feet are toasty warm and the general effect is very pleasant (and a bit soporific). The Koreans are indeed onto something good here, it's as nice as central heating (and I suspect more energy-efficient) and a heck of a lot better than the space heaters you see in Europe... or in my middle school.
