Snow in Iraq

As many of you may seen on the news, it snowed in Baghdad the other day. Yes it also snowed where we are stationed as well. Big white fluffy flakes that did not stick as they hit the ground. I think we officially hit our "rainy" season out here with our first measurable amount of rain. If I had to estimate I would say .4 to .5 tenths. Not much by back home standards, but it was enough to wet all the sand and leave mud puddles everywhere. It is also alot of rain for a place that doesn't get over 2 inches a year.

On the lighter side of things, Myrtle "Frank" the Turle was brought into the world yesterday. Carolyn sent a chia pet over for christmas. The long name comes from I wanted to name it Myrtle for obvious reasons (mainly because it rhymed). While a certain Twizzler hoarding Marine wanted to name it Frank. I compromised (he still claims victory due to the fact he has been a Sgt longer than me...I humor him).
