    Maybe they should have stated this snow comes from China, like everything else that is contaminated. We never know what is falling from our skies today. One thing for sure is if we send it up , it will eventually come down.

    Your right Johnnie. I've seen that same warning several years ago when we got a good snow here. But then again you can't really trust what you buy to eat in the grocery store either with all the chemicals and preservatives.

    I remember when I was growing up, and we'd have several snows each winter, we always skipped making snow cream out of the first snow. I guess the feeling was that the first snow got all the crud out of the air or something. I was too young to really understand the reasoning, if there was any.

    momma use to make snow cream when we was kids. I haven't thought of this in years. pollution is worse now than it was then so mabee it's not a good idea to eat it. fortunately we missed the big snow ya'll got this week but we've had our fair share. I hate the ugly white mess and it hurts my ole blood shot eyes.:cool2:
