Sometime around 1991 several winters had passed with a near complete absence of such seasonal precipitation.
Our local TV weather forecaster, one Greg Fishel, publicly lamented the absence of such seasonal precipitation on the evening news broadcast !
Those of us down at the International Handyman Headquarters heard his lamentations and acted to relieve his suffering with our own warm weather field expedient improvised snowman and snowball fight .
We fear his pain may not have been completely diminished but we did our best!
Happy 30th Anniversary Greg! It seems like only yesterday you first graced our local TV screens!
