I took these pictures Wednesday afternoon after we got slammed with 20" of snow in five hours. I think you can see from our faces what a terrible, exhausting drag this storm has been. We're all completely miserable and want the snow to end!
There is no such thing as "playing in snow." It is an utterly useless substance which is always either too powdery or too wet to mold into any structure containing any functional or aesthetic value, no matter what implements you use to form it, as you can see.
People think it's funny to pick up kids and throw them into the snow. It is not! They think it is fun for the kid, too. I think the look on my terrified son's face shows that it absolutely is not!
Traversing through unbroken snow is exhausting and dangerous.
Sometimes you fall.
Snow buries vehicles and makes roads impassible.
This face is saying, "Get me out of this inhospitable, white muck!"
There is absolutely no way to keep that freezing muck from packing into your pant legs.
Even if you're riding in a laundry basket!
The utter dreadfulness of a big snow makes some people crack, sending them into self-destructive seizures . . .
. . . freezing their faces!
