The Snowman must be in his glory today over at the Golden Snowball. All I can say is — after enduring WSYR’s “Severe Weather Alert” text messages since Thursday (for a storm that would arrive three days later!) and becoming one with the mob at Wegmans this morning — this had better be good.
I did notice that on the Weather Channel, Syracuse was one of the “control cities” depicted on their map. But alas Syracuse still probably has a long way to go before it’s known as something other than an annual winter freakshow. Not like Quebec City, which has a classy winter carnival; over at Sean Kirst’s forum, there’s some video of what they do up there (see “Winter Carnival” thread).
Still, it’ll be a perfect weekend for holiday baking. Cookie dough and driving snow — what could be more fun?
