Snow

Snow (n): a white, fluffy form of microcrystalline ice that only forms when there is no school for cancellation

About thirty-six hours ago, the weathermonkeys were predicting 11 to 16 inches of snow. We got maybe six inches, maybe not quite. I've learned to roughly halve the TV estimate if it's over six inches. It's usually pretty close to right, because we never live up to what they're saying. I wonder if they intentionally inflate the numbers so people will get inside and be safe.

In any case, it's not all bad. I get to have a snowball fight tomorrow with a couple of my friends. They have no idea what they're in for.
