First snow of 2009 in the city

17 February 2009. IVPP, Beijing.

A week after the conclusion of the Spring festival and only a few weeks into the year of the ox, Beijing city received a light coat of snow early this morning.

[A frosty dinosaur statue in front of the IVPP.]

[The front walkway to the Paleozoology Museum, with footsteps of morning strollers on the snow.]

[The parking lot on the east side of IVPP, with the student dormitory in the center; my room is the first window on the top floor just above the glass building.]

Research continues as I deal with pending manuscripts and new studies on hyena skulls.
