My Apologies

I would like to take this opportunity to apologize to all of the children in the Seattle area who were hoping for snow this winter.  I feel it is completely my fault and I want to extend my sincerest apology. 
Let me explain.
We moved to Seattle 7 years ago from New Jersey.  It snows every winter in New Jersey and sometimes it snows a lot!  When we moved here we were told that it never snows in Seattle.  After living here for 6 years, I wasn't sure if Seattlites were all liars or just in denial.  It has snowed every year.  And some years it has snowed a lot!
This year Santa brought sleds to my kids.  Their first ever new sleds.  Before that they had one sled that they shared.  We got that sled when we bought our previous house in New Jersey and the previous owner had left it in the garage.
So this year my kids got brand new sleds.  And it hasn't snowed.  Not once.  For the first time in 7 years.
Coincidence or conspiracy?
So I'm sorry to the kids who have been waiting all winter for snow.
And you're welcome to all of the parents who were dreading a snow day.

too bad! we lived in South Dakota for 30 years. My kids and I loved to go sledding. when they were little they stayed out all of 2 minutes. needed new snow suits, mittens, hats etc. the memories of 2 and four years in the winter time.
