No sledding!?

KidsSledding

I remember coming across an article last year that talked about how the city of Dubuque, Iowa was going to (and eventually did) outlaw sledding. Here’s an article from Radio Iowa entitled “Dubuque Decision on Sledding Ban Getting Lots of Attention“.

Then I came across this article tonight entitled “To Toboggan or Not to Toboggan? Canadians Can’t Agree” by Katherine Martinko over at Treehugger. Are you serious? No sledding? We’ll at least my kids can still sled here in St. Louis, Missouri.

No evolution required

I have to say that this is something that I didn’t know happened, let alone for 2 billion years. According to ENN, “Scientist Discover Organism That Hasn’t Evolved in More Than 2 Billion Years“.

Sledding all winter long

I got my daughter a sled for Christmas and so what happened? It hasn’t snowed since. I have to say I can’t remember a winter this brown.

I guess however, if we moved from the Midwest up to Edmonton, Alberta we might have a better chance of sledding. This according to Heather Smith at the Grist in her article entitled “This Edmonton Ice Path Would be Amazing“. Pardon the pun but would be so cool!
