Beloved by the Snow Gods

As you've probably heard, the snow gods have a crush on Philadelphia. They cannot get enough of us, hanging around and trying to get our attention. "Look how much I love you," they proclaim, dumping so much snow they've already broken the record for annual snowfall, and it's only February. "Look! Look at me!" they call, as the snow continues to fall. "Love me, love me!"

Philadelphians, with a sigh, pick up their collective snow shovels and say, "Gee, thanks."
