Last night I had the Buffet o’ Blog staff over to my house, and as always, it was a great time. Just the sheer amount of awesome in one place is enough to make some people jealous that they weren’t invited. But we did something that may cause additional feelings of jealousy: We made it snow. (Yeah, you read that right.) One of the guys built a snow making machine. The outside temperature was right at freezing when we started it, but it cooled down enough that we had some accumulation.
I realize we have some readers in other locations, even as far north as Canada, so getting snow may seem ho-hum to you, but here in Arkansas, we haven’t got a real snowfall yet this year — just some ice and sleet. So this is a big deal. This is exclusive snow. And it’s homemade.
Now, don’t be mad or jealous. I realize you might be tempted to feel that way, because no one else in this area got any snow. You may be thinking, “What makes you so special, to get snow?” Well, it’s because we are special. And we built the snow machine. 🙂
There’s still some in the front yard, even though it has warmed up quite a bit today. I wonder what the neighbors thought when they saw it…

The neighbors were probably calling chief meteorologist Ned Perme to ask what’s up, and why he didn’t include snow in the forecast. If they had known, they would’ve went to Walmart and bought lots of bread and milk.
Ironically, today we’re getting real snow, despite it not being in the forecast. So there’s probably widespread panic because people didn’t get to go to the grocery store beforehand. (Never mind that there’s little to no accumulation — the stores are probably packed anyway.)
For those of you who doubted, this was actual snow, created from a homemade snow maker. I know some stories get embellished on this blog, but this one is completely true.
