Reasons Why Snow is Not Cool When You’re a Grown Up

They’re calling for a possible 3 to 7 inches of snow tomorrow, depending on which way the wind blows. Personally I’m wishing winter would just blow on over and get out of here. I’m sure tomorrow night’s snow will look great on top of what’s left from last week’s 5 to 6 inches that never …
