“Let it snow.”
That is a silly phrase.
As if somehow we could decide to not let the snow fall. Maybe by radioing a command up the line somewhere:
“Hold off on the frozen precip, Harry. These peeps in Denver are having a hard enough time driving on the stuff left on the streets from Christmas day, and they need to get to work tomorrow.”
“Copy that, Lisa. Will do.”
But WordPress.com has given me this power: Until January 2, I can make it snow on my very own blog. Or make it stop.
