Happy St. Patrick’s Day, Beijing. You’re supposed to dye the waters green, not layer the city in three-five inches of impenetrable snow.
In the hutongs near Nanluoguxiang we got around 3-5 inches of light, fluffy snow.

Our little hutong alleyway as the giant snowflakes fall. 2am.
And finally, the classic shot of the streetlight in the snow.
A friend of ours took these side-by-side pics from her highrise in downtown Beijing. 1:30am.
