I guess I was too subtle. Allow me to rephrase: I can see why children would want to build snow men, snow forts, and snow angels, but fail to understand why they would want to build snow shovels.
Nan, the snow pants and snow boots are obviously parts of the snow man (along with the snow shirts and, of course, the very infamous snow tophats). And I ain't even gonna touch snow blower.
Yea, it's pretty bad down this way, too, Kit. I'm not sure how much snow fell (both the road and driveway have been lost), but it was enough to close down just about everything. Schools, of course, most meetings, a lot of factories, even a mall or two. I wonder if that will bump Christmas back a day or two?
My lake beneath a sheath of snow,
Beneath that sheath, hard ice of woe,
And farther yet the fish ensnared,
Their prison like the one I share.
