Prime Time Is A-Wastin'

WHERE ARE MY SNOW DAYS?

I know, it seems greedy to ask for more days off, here at the tail-end of a three-day weekend. But I want more. We are over halfway through January, by cracky! It's time to make snow days while the sun doesn't shine. We are four weeks into the thirteen-week season of winter! Nigh on prime time for fluffy precipitation.

GET ON THE STICK, MOTHER NATURE!

None of this "maybe we might see a flurry or two north of the city" type of forecast! Let's get right to it. The kind of forecast that puts folks on alert to snarf up all the milk and bread available at the retail outlets. Makes them listen to the news for school closings. Hunker down in front of the picture window and watch the flakes fall fast and furious.

I'm ready.

Was it Vanilla Ice who sang, "Ice, ice, baby"?

We need ice as well as snow. A thick sheet of ice o'er everything, and then some snow.

A big dab'll do it...

The sky looks prime today over here at the kampground. No flakes yet, well, except for me.

Sioux,
That's an incredible master plan. Now make it happen.

Kathy,
Nary a flake drifted down on the grounds of Hillmomba. I did not even encounter one such as yourself.

In BigCityLand, we are supposed to get some ice Thursday night. The streets are supposed to get--wait for it--trecherous.

I can hardly wait.
