Our wonderful world has not been lacking in snow this winter, which makes for a nice chance. All praise to the weather overlords.
Of course, we’re inclined to make the most of it – largely because as a species we are now scared when good things happen that they’ll either end too soon, we won’t take full advantage of them or that they’ll never happen again. What with global warming and all, a lot of us are starting to grow eerily concerned that by the end of our lifetimes all we’ll have left to slide down are sand dunes, snow domes, and flat-block staircases – nevermind slopes.
So while there is enough snow around the streets to go full-Scandinavia and cross-country ski to the morning’s milk and cereal, and snowboard out front doors and houses which for the first time ever are “ski-in, ski-out”, you better believe we’re gonna do it.
“The snowboarder was inches from sliding over a cliff and falling to their almost definite death…”
