Not quite up to Albuquerque levels, but may well be the once-in-a-year event for Cambridge. We woke up to... a white blanket enveloping everything, or so it looked at first sight.

Only time we ever get snow is in the afternoon/evening, so that instead of not being able ot get to work, we can't get home from work. This being proof that climate is in fact determioned entirely by capracious entities blowing from the edge of the map.
