"Oooooohhh I just have to tell you, I'm baaaaaaaaaaaaak. We went south to get away from the cold and hoping our head colds would clear up. Now we're back and I think the colds were just waiting for us to return. If we had known that all this old white stuff was going to greet us, we would have stayed a while longer.
