Fascinating Friday Links #24

Do I even need to say that we have a three hour delay today?

THERE’S NO MORE ROOM FOR THIS SNOW. Shoveling was a *bleep* yesterday because the hill of snow beside our driveway grew super high, so every shovelful of snow required a legit squat clean + shot-put throw. Olympic shoveling should be a thing! Use a small shovel for cardio (since you go back for more snow more quickly) and use a big shovel for strength. Let me know if we should petition for this in the 2018 winter games.

Speaking of which, who else watched all the drama in the men’s figure skating competition last night?! First Yevgeny withdraws, then Jeremy Abbott takes a major fall…My jaw was dropping low to the flo’.

Anyway, it’s Friday, it’s Valentine’s Day, and it’s the start of my winter break! Can it really be called break with all these snow days though? Not complaining.

Here are some Fascinating Friday Links for your fancy!
