Today I made shaved ice with homemade syrup. I know snow today is full of pollutants, but I wasn't planning on eating much, so I figured we'd be ok. I put a measuring cup outside the garage door to catch the snow. It's a pretty sheltered place and, more importantly, easy to reach without getting your feet wet!
I tried to think of sunny, tropical weather as I was eating in my cold and gloomy kitchen.
