Snow Day

December 18, 2008

So, although yesterday was supposed to be the big storm day, and turned out relatively mild (all Seattle schools were closed as well :-/), I woke up to 3-5 inches of snow today. Now, while I know this isn’t much, its basically slowed all movement on Seattle’s streets and left most stranded at home. Not that anyone minds…

In other news, this xkcd cartoon reminded me of my participation in the World’s Largest Marshmallow Fight (ever) at Oakton Park in Skokie.

And in case you’re questioning whether this really existed:

In Illinois, 2,500 kids showed up at a park one winter to throw "snowballs" at each other. What they threw were 130,000 soft, sweet ones. Organizers were trying to get in the [_Guinness Book of World Records_](http://www.tc.faa.gov/its/worldpac/ENG/r000003/r002542.htm) for the "World's Largest Marshmallow Fight."
