The recent post by Ann Posegate, Winter Weather Joke, inspired me to review my collection of winter-related jokes accumulated from various sources over the years. As a snow lover frequently crushed by the rainy realities of winter weather in the D.C. metro region, good jokes are often the only means to soften the blows.
Since I suspect I'm far from alone in these feelings I submit some of my favorite jokes to prepare for the possible disappointments to come this winter. Please feel free to provide additional jokes, stories or videos via comment. I'll have much more to say on the realistic possibilities of a "big one" in a post coming soon...

A blonde driving a car became lost in a snowstorm. She didn't panic however, because she remembered what her dad had once told her. "If you ever get stuck in a snowstorm, just wait for a snow plow to come by and follow it. Sure enough, pretty soon a snow plow came by, and she started to follow it. She followed the plow for about forty-five minutes. Finally the driver of the truck got out and asked her what she was doing. And she explained that her dad had told her if she ever got stuck in a snow storm, to follow a plow. The driver nodded and said, "Well, I'm done with the Wal-Mart parking lot, do you want to follow me over to K-Mart now?" (Source)
If none of the above evokes a laugh adequate to console the grief experienced should this be yet another disappointing winter, this video should do the trick. If not, you - and perhaps me as well - are too far gone to find comfort in anything but believing that next year is a sure bet for the "big one".
