Like SpongeBob Bouncing On His Buttocks 

For all the grief that snow causes -- extra work on removal when you have a hundred other things to do, thoughts of longer commute times, impassible roads, family members skidding into ditches or other lanes of traffic, extra weight and freezing dampness on untested roofs and rain gutters, weak tree branches hanging over power lines, you know, the lot -- when I walked outside around noon today, I found it snowing in the city and couldn't help grinning. You know how SpongeBob and Patrick get sometimes where their eyes grow big and goofy and they hold onto their feet and bounce around the place on their butts, giggling? That was me, albeit to a lesser degree.
