I live in the most temperate part of Canada.  We hardly get any snow in a normal winter.  However, from time to time we do get an amount that is exceptional for our area.  This loss of "temperateness" often tempts us to temporarily lose our temper until the temperature returns closer to that of tempora chicken.  Consequently, in our neck of the woods we don't enjoy watching the snow melt - we enjoy watching it die.

It's a pity, really, because snow flakes have such potential to be cheery things. For intance, find the Cybersalt Snowflake below (use the search tool and search "cybersalt" in the message field) and you'll get a nice message from me.  And, of course, you can always make your own snowflake and spread your own happy message around.
