Happy Snow Day!

My kids could not be more delighted that today is a snow day. Emily has already left to go sledding, after fielding her offers. Liz is getting ready to go too, but first she shares this...

If your nose is runny
And you want to kiss your honey
And you really think it's funny
Well, it's snot!

Happy Snow Day, Everyone!

...the snow was very pretty this morning, very pretty.
And I was also glad to see our Ann Arbor tax dollars hard at work keeping the streets beautiful, because you don't want freshly-fallen snow spoiled by let's say...a snow plow.

Just think how appreciative your mailman is when he sees the unbroken beautiful vista of twinkling white up your driveway and across your front lawn to the mailbox...when YOU don't shovel for days and days after a snow.

...less than 2" of snow, why shovel? ;-)

I don't shovel. Because I live with a fah-reak who actually likes to shovel snow. He also likes cleaning gutters and raking leaves. (I know. I married very well.)

Not that I know who you are, but I'd like to make a suggestion to the first two anonymous commentors: Buy a small Lego set, any kind, maybe a damaged one, something near the register at Toys R Mine... Then, open the package and toss the pieces out into your yard, driveway, sidewalk, etc., anywhere you'd like less snow. Then casually mention that whoever who finds the "Buried Treasure Legos" gets to keep them. Your snow will be gone PDQ.

But Lisa, will the Lego trick work on the streets?

BTW, I'm the frustrated driver who posted the snow plow post...your know, Gabe's Dad.

Drove to work after the snowfall (would have rather stayed home and played in the snow), and the main streets had not been touched. You know, I like snow, and it WAS pretty, and I'm OK with not using salt on the know, pollution and all...but can they at least gas-up the plows?

The Lego method works pretty much anywhere I've tried. Like a squirrel after a nut!
