Snow in OR 5

Snow in OR 5, originally uploaded by ccoppola@pol.net.

I went to the roof for coffee and found a winter wonderland! The first snow in Balad
in 65 years!

I'm so glad you got to enjoy the magic of the snow in Iraq! According to the news articles, it was a moment of delight in an area sorely lacking in moments of delight and joy. :) Happy New Year! (I know it's not Jan 1st, but it's close enough!)

Is this proof that Hell did freeze over?

tx mom, My same very thoughts......hell froze over or the world is coming to an end!

Guess I never thought about SNOW happening in that part of the world. Glad you had the chance to see it!

Be well,

I want to echo retjet and add that we think about you and talk about you all the time. My husband is retired army. I have only known him 4 years and my view of the world and view of the military has changed. Plus I love shopping at the commissary. I am looking forward to when we hear from you from Texas. Love, Mary Ann

Wow, the white stuff in Iraq! Way cool. Looks like you are having a good time standing in it.

Have a good day, Chris, you deserve it.
