The snow's only been here for a day; already kids are building snowvoters everywhere

The Advantage to a Winter Election


It's snowing. It's snowing lots.

From all reports, this time the snow is going to stay; worse, it's going to build. Come January 23rd, there's going to be a lot of snow on the ground. Probably not snow-banks up to your eyeballs, but probably up to mine.

The upshot?

Thirty years from now, when your kids complain about anything, always remember that you'll be able to tell them...

"When I was your age, I had to walk 1100 meters through hip-deep snow just to vote!"
