Oh crap! I keep hearing “there isn’t going to be any epic snow days this year.” Or “we won’t get to see the snow and wind ‘nuking’ at the local resorts.” Wrong! Are your snow dances not working? Your desperate snow prayers going unanswered? The local weather people not giving you any hope of Monster Dump days? Relax! All is not lost. Not likely by a long shot!
