Snow

I know, I know. You all know it snows here. But you know, the weather really hasn't been making the kind effort we would like. We've had a couple of spluttering flurries, which leaves JUST ENOUGH whiteness to tease us, but not beautify the world.

UNTIL LAST NIGHT. Buckets. Tons. Heaps. It's awesome.

Now, let me just give you some advice regarding snow and it's soft loveliness. Don't be tempted to put your bare foot into it "just to see what it feels like". It's NOT a good idea. That "how cold can it REALLY be?" thought should be put out of your head as fast as possible. It isn't cold. It's pain. Ful. LOTS! The whole experience is actually more like this:

"Hmm, that's soft. Wow, I can barely feel it it's so soft. It's inbetween my toes, that's so rad. It's kinda cold, but not too... oh WOW, THATS COLD! Jeez. Oh OW! SHHHH MAN! Come on, I've wiped it off!? WHY IS IT STILL HURTING?!". There is some frantic foot-on-ground-wiping in there somewhere, I just can't recall exactly when. But all in all, it's not worth it. Rather put your foot in a bowl of salt or dandruff.

So, photos. Right. Here.


That is all.

Did the snow offend you so much that you didn't take a picture of it? Not that your budgie and lizard aren't very pretty, but to tell us about your snow and then not give us a picture so that we can be insanely jealous is cruel.
