"In a cold and snowy land there lived the people of the North Country. Some of them made a living by plowing and disposing of the snow that seemed to fall endlessly from the skies between November and March. ... But in the winter of 2011-12 the snows seemed to stop. Oh there was a little ice and some snow, but not really enough to plow: Warmer temperatures quickly melted the little that fell. The Snow Plowers were not happy. They gathered the people of the town and complained that the lack of snowfall was devastating the economy of the North Country." (02/09/12)
