Yet not so OT as some other things. This occurred to me this morning walking to work, all you people who do the “social media”, next time there is a good packing snow, someone should try and like, flashmob a monster snowball fight. My snowball hand is itchy.

I have been known to go to a very visible spot on the corporate lawn during my lunch time and make snow angels. When I can get help, I make snow men. What’s most entertaining to me is not the act, but the responses of my coworkers, who seem all at once energized and enthusiastic while maintaining that they “can’t do that”. I ask why, and they shuffle their feet & stare at the floor. Where do grown ups learn this kind of thing?
Last place I worked, two days before I left, I made a snowman that faced the desk of the top exec, head at eye level, smiling and waving at him through his window about 20 feet away. Very satisfying.
East Aurora got a #6 or better easily 10 times a year. Below #4 we didn’t even notice snow. Moving here (and now living here for 29 winters) made me realize how soft the rest of the world is. (“Whaddya complaining about? It’s only 4″! If you can’t drive in it, stay the hell home.”)
