On a day like today in the Northland with the temperature hovering around -11 Degrees and throw in the wind chill, I would trade places with someone in Houston Texas in a heartbeat right now. But as they say, the grass is always greener on the other side, and ours is covered with real snow right now.

A big and growing tend down South at least in parts of Texas is "Snow Parties" where parents pay big bucks for a company to come out and spray snow in the yard at a hefty price. I could not even imagine only having seen snow in the movies, but I guess the same can be said for Midwestern kids who have never seen the ocean or mountains.

I love that this one particular company only uses bottled water to make sure the snow is sanitary in case any of the kids try to eat it. Say What? We have all made a snowball and taken a bite only to fight a piece of grass or a little dirt in it, it builds character.

So why we ride out this arctic blast take a look at the video below, and be thankful that we get our snow for free.
