Let it snow

Here's the quietest street in Lee County. As you can see by the bullet hole in the bottom of the sign, mention "snow" in Florida and some people lose their sense of humor. I love snow; it's a wonder of nature, and a planetary feature that may be unique in the universe. I like the winter Olympics better than the summer games. As a kid I lived to skate. I like stopping by a wood on a snowy evening. Christmas in Manhattan, snow-dusted and cornucopia-spilling, is a jewel of civilization. I love when it sticks on my nose and eyelashes. And I like, most of all, remembering it fondly.
