It’s Beginning to Look at Lot Like Christmas!
Shortly after my return from the RL frozen northlands, Whimsy experienced an uncharacteristic winter storm.
Thanks to my great weather machine, a blizzard raged in Whimsy, blanketing the entire sim. When it was over, the high elevations were covered with snow.
A day later it snowed again. When the storm abated, Whimsy’s green land textures were gone. The sim was completely white.
The lagoon froze solid, and the ponds iced over.
This was all the excuse we needed to throw out every ridiculous Christmas build in our inventories. There are snowmen and Christmas trees all about, ice sculptures on the lagoon, and a welcome center that offers hot chocolate to visiting avatars and cookies and milk for Santa. I put out free ice skates and snowball throwers.
Take a look at winter Whimsy!
