Why, my goodness, yes.
I remember the great winter storm of ought-eight.
It was a sight to behold! Snow lying so thick on the ground, by golly, you could actually see the stuff.
Schools closed! Businesses emptied! Why the only trade going on in town was a brisk business in milk and toilet paper at the general store.
The weather men were all a-twitter with the news that, ok, yes, it was just raining now, but BY GUM there had been WINTERY MIX coming down. Can’t you just picture it?
No, they don’t make weather like that anymore.
