More snow? Is this a joke? 10 inches today, maybe another foot on Sunday? Are the weather gods just sitting up in the sky laughing at us as we continue to shovel day after day? Maybe it’s a just a big joke to them. They sprinkle some snow we all panic and shovel and plow and de-ice until there are no traces of snow left. Then they sprinkle some more snow, and guess what we do? Same thing, right? I would be laughing if I were them too! It’s the weather gods version of vine.
I am of course just kidding. I don’t believe in weather gods. If any one is up the sky controlling the weather it is some sort of devil for sure!
Enough about the snow, and ice, and frigid temperatures. Lets talk cookies.
