This post has nothing to do with banding, but I have been laughing about this thought all day.
As I have said, here in the UK we are witnessing the coldest snowiest winter in almost 30-years. Tonight our “boys night out for beer” was called off due to a bit of snow.
In Lindley, Huddersfield, 6-inches of snow closed schools for 2 1/2 days. The folks are just not used to this. This morning we had temperatures in the high teens (fahrenheit) which was termed by THE SNOW DESK as “bitter cold”.
On the radio they read a text from a man walking in Huddersfield at the height of the snow who wrote “It feels like the world is ending”.
After 4-days the foot paths (sidewalks) are still totally covered in snow as are all the side roads.
At Kate’s primary school the playground blacktop is still totally covered with snow and the teachers park 3-blocks away on the main road because the car park (parking lot) is closed and still covered with snow. And yet………in light of all of this………the kids still went outside for recess!!!
In Glassboro, NJ (where they just got 2-feet of the white stuff)….Kate remembered today “Back home, they don’t let us go out when it snows, and if by some chance we do go out, we are not allowed to touch it”.
Just makes me laugh that here while “the world is ending” the kids go out to play, and back home where everything gets plowed and salted, my kids can’t touch it!
