Oh, no! Snow!

Night terrors

A Skipper ROUS post:

I suppose most of my readers know Dobby Winnick. He is my BFF. But I’ve always thought he was “untruthful.” You know what I mean. One of the things I doubted was this thing he called snow. He said snow is flaked water that falls from the sky. Ridiculous. But then things are different on Washington Planet.
