[lit-ideas] Snowballs are falling

It's snowing very hard today, giant wet snowflakes that cling to everything.  
It doesn't snow like this very often in Memphis.  They say we average 5 inches 
a year, but I can't remember any snow for the last 4 years.  Everybody gets 
excited here when it starts these showy snows.  The schools are already closed, 
grocery stores will be packed, most of the local TV news is taken up with 
announcements of closings and cancellations and postponements.  The bars all 
get filled with merry-makers.  Adults turn into children.  It's fascinating how 
a little break in the routine can change so much.  Many that's what's going on 
in the Muslim countries, maybe the cartoons are just snow ti them, they're 
celebrating.  L'chaym, fellas.
