A snow festival where???

Good evening, Netizens…

In this, our picture of the day, a snow sculpture takes shape at the Snow Festival in Harbin, northeastern China’s Heilongjiang province, Monday. (AP Photo/Ng Han Guan) (January 05, 2009)

We could, of course, allow these artists into Spokane, Washington. At least we would come up with a beautiful outcome from the snow piled up everywhere. Of course, certain powers-that-be would probably take umbrage at my idea of putting a life-sized statue of Queen Mary in front of City Hall to welcome visitors until the pineapple express hits later on this week.

Yet another thought— create a full-sized statue of a tired driver dismounting from a snowplow at the end of a 14 hour shift. Yes, that also could adorn the front lawn of City Hall, perhaps to remind everyone, myself included, that the plow drivers have had a pretty thankless job (despite the incredible overtime pay) during this introduction to winter 101. Maybe songwriter Doug Clark should even write them a song.
