Maybe it's my imagination, but this winter seems to have given us an unusual number of what I like to call "snow globe" moments. Those moments are times when you look outside at the scenery and it appears that you're living in a snow globe. The snow is gently falling, the landscape is covered with a fresh powder of white, the trees are coated with frost -- almost as if someone has shaken a snow globe. Of course, if that were the case you'd probably notice a little bit of Jerry Lee Lewis action, you know, a whole lot of shaking going on? Plates would be falling out of the cupboard, books would be tumbling from their shelves, chandeliers swinging violently back and forth. Maybe that explains earthquakes?
