Our snow day has been cancelled

Not exactly garden-related but too funny not to share.  How I know I live in Southern California: I just got an email from Glendora Community  Services with the subject line, "Snow Day Cancelled."  Bewildered, I opened the email.  The first sentence: "Snow City has been cancelled due to weather."  For those of you who aren't Californians and are therefore very confused, Glendora schedules a snow day every year, for which they bring in a snow machine to make snow so kids can play in it.  I tell ya, you just can't make this stuff up.  Maybe Portland should schedule an annual Sun Day and rent a sun machine.  I'm picturing a giant tanning bed...
