I get asked this question a lot this time of year; HOW MUCH LONGER WILL YOU HAVE SNOW?
I am so flattered that people think I have this kind of knowledge. So, I pulled out all the stops in order to get an answer for those inquiring minds.
First off, I consulted the Crazy 8 ball. Some of you "youngsters" might not know what that is since everything is electronic now. It is a black sphere about the size of a large grapefruit. It is made to look like the 8 ball used in a game of pool. The wonderful thing about THIS ball is that it can predict the future! You ask it a question, turn it upside down, and the answer miraculously appears in a little window that you didn't even know was there! So, as I said, first off, I consulted the Crazy 8 ball; "How long will we have snow?" The answer was hazy but soon appeared "Check back later."
Well, since THAT was a bust, I thought I'd try the old Mirror Mirror on the Wall trick. So, when I got out of the shower this a.m. and the bathroom was all steamy and the mirror was foggy, I cleared off an area on the mirror so I could talk to it.
ME: Mirror, Mirror
On the wall
How much longer
Will the snow fall
IMAGE IN THE MIRROR REPLIES: Comb your hair
So I can see your eyes
I have no clue
How long the snow flies!
Ya gotta give me credit for trying!
