My city is hosting the Canada Winter Games in two weeks, but the last couple of weeks have been distressingly snow-and-cold-free (not normal for January). Lots of people were getting pretty worried that there would be no snow for the Games, which would be disastrous. One of the counsellors at the college told me today that she had done a snow dance and it had worked. I’ll say! It looks gorgeous today.
Sometimes when it snows I am reminded of this Onion News headline. [I guess I should note: profanity warning. It’s The Onion.] It makes me laugh in affectionate recognition because I frequently express much the same sentiment. I like to say, “A fresh snowfall covers up a multitude of sins.”
