Scanning electron micrograph of a capped column snowflake, with rime frost, a white ice that forms when the water droplets in fog freeze to the outer surfaces of objects, on both ends. When the riming process continues so that the shape of the original snow crystal is no longer identifiable, the resulting crystal is referred to as graupel.

We started our Safe House Alpha last night.
For various reasons (including but not limited to my personal near burn-out), we are doing our churh's Alpha Course in our home. The idea is to have an intimate, comfortable setting, home-cooked (or seemingly) meals, and a family feel.
Our house is a little small, but it seemed to work. I have some furniture re-arranging to do, and some schedule fine-tuning, but the format shows promise. Ideally, we would multiply these around the city, sort of like Tupperware Parties.
