There's a snowball in my freezer.

I put it there, but it still startled me this morning. (It didn't help that it's in a zip-lock bag that says "Trick or Treat" on it.) I was like, What the hell is this thing? before I remembered. The snow came off my car, although I think there was enough snow sticking to the grass by the time it stopped snowing that you probably could have gotten a decent snowball there, too. It never did stick on the streets that I saw, though. My car was really covered, and I was a bit worried that it would turn to ice overnight, but since I didn't have to get up early it's not really an issue; it was melted by the time I finally got up. We only have one covered space, which Rob uses, so his car was fine.

I think it's a snowball that would have hurt if I had actually thrown it. The snow was kind of damp, and the snowball was heavy. I am no expert on the physics of snowballs, though.

I have been working on cards this afternoon. One night last week I wrote addresses on a bunch of envelopes, but that was as far as I ever got with that, so today I signed cards and added stamps and licked envelopes. That fun stuff. I don't know why I like sending cards so much because it's really kind of a pain. (I like getting them, I suppose, for one thing - but no, there's some part of sending them that I like, too. It's not that simple.)

I keep saying I'm going to go up to Houston to shop, and today would have been a good day to go since it's warmer and sunny, but, well, I'm still here. Maybe tomorrow.

Damp and heavy don't really hurt unless you get pegged in the face/head or aren't dressed for the snow (layers protect you from the cold and from the impact). But now you've made an ice ball. Those inflict more damage points.

If you're really anti-social, you can stick a nice rock in the middle before freezing.

Well, yes, I wasn't really intending to throw the hard-frozen one at anybody. I don't know what I'm intending to do with it, really!

Nobody around here dresses for snow. This is the Texas coast, we don't own clothes like that.

Saw you on holidailies, and just had to come say that your first line made me think of an old Bill Cosby routine.

His snowball didn't survive, though.

I kept thinking "there's a snowball in my freezer" sounded like the punchline to something. I don't know what, but something.
