Ice Stage

Imagine this: take a 1/18 scale model car and drench it in water, freeze it, cover it with a layer of snow, pour more water on it, and finally, freeze it a second time for good measure. Then, try scraping all the snow and ice off of it using only a toothpick. If you can imagine this, then you know why it took nearly an hour to get the car out of the driveway today. And the forecasts are calling for more such weather. Hooray!

Now, I know that I have said many times that I like the winter and winter weather. I do, and I’m sticking to that; but this is not winter weather. This is some sort of winter-spring mutant hybrid monster storm. Or, as I like to call it, a wsmhms. Wsmhms’ suck.

PS. It’s pronounced Wissmimms. All other pronunciations are wrong.
