Since I'm In Complete Denial That It's Going To Snow This Year, Here's One Event I Won't Be Attending

You're invited to join Spokane Mayor Mary Verner tomorrow for a dog and pony show as the City of Spokane officially launches the snow season at 11 a.m. It takes place at the City’s Normandie Complex, at West Sinto Avenue and North Normandie Street.

After two years of record snowfall, the Mayor would like to take this opportunity to inform citizens about how the City has prepared for winter weather and to encourage everyone to prepare as well.

At the last City event I attended, a tree planting, there were refreshments, so maybe they'll have them this time as well (who serves refreshments at a tree planting by the way??).

You know, I think I should get credentials to be a travel agent, then hold a tropical fair at the same time the snow fest is going... I bet my event would win...

Count me in. I think people would respond to something that reminded them of summer when it's cold outside.
