Yeah, that there is snow, and that’s me on the inside not being able to go for a walk

  • Sue From Ohio

    Oh and about the buffalo wings…are they made from REAL buffalo, BAHAHAHAHAA just kidding.

    I thought you were 30?

  • Stacey

    We’ll be joining you here in Canada by Monday. Atleast that’s what the weather man is saying.


  • Liisa

    I’m thinking 2 things:
    1) Has Leta played in the snow yet? That sounds like fun.
    2)Really? Just met Buffalo wings? Just recently? So, like, um, you haven’t ever had a 25 spicy buffalo wing poop? Oh, Heather…

  • Ty

    Oh, God, Heather!! Liisa is SOOO right!!!! Ha!Ha! I can just imagine the the posts tomorrow…errr…a couple days from now?? Titled, “Buffalo Wings, thou art EVIL!”

  • Amber

    29 years and no wings until now? Girl you are JUST NOW STARTING LIFE! mmm mmm

    By the way, I live up here in the north and I haven’t seen any snow. What is up with that? *so jealous* (I lived in central Texas most of my life, so snow is still a novelty for me) :)

    Love in Christ,
    Amber <><

  • Heather 2

    My boyfriend kept telling me that he went to Hooters for the food. I never believed him…until I went with. I’m now hooked. Buffalo sauce has now become my obsession, and I put it on absolutely ANYTHING I can think of. YUM!

  • Angie M

    Does anyone have a good receipe for buffalo wings? I have an urge to try them myself now!

  • Aimee

    ah snow – I’m a Californian too and don’t see much of it. I spent two days in it and realized about 2 hours into the trip that the act of shoveling snow…to make enough space to park a VW Beetle in the driveway…is enough to make the novelty of snow wear off. :) Bring on the 75 degree days!

  • Toni

    Did Chuck take that picture?

    : )

  • Ty

    I used to work at a restaurant that had grilled buffalo wings, not fried and loved them. I figured out how to make them recently…it’s SUPER easy. Get some Frank’s Red Hot–it is the flavor of buffalo wings you will recognize–marinate some wings in it for as long as you can…minimum 30 min. Then grill them and add a little sauce as you grill with a basting brush. Then give them a quick toss in some more Frank’s to give them a little extra kick and the right messy feel. And by the way, Frank’s is what we used at the restaurant. I used to see it brought in by the caseload. Hope that helps…

  • Vanessa

    Aaaah snow!! Makes me want to cry. Bring on the seasonal depression.

    On Buffalo wings: I’m Rochester, NY. Just a hop, skip, and a jump to the birthplace of those spicy little birdies. Mmmmm.

  • angelala

    go play in the snow!

  • Heatheranne

    I hate snow! I dread winter, but my husband loves snow and winter.

  • Kathleen S

    I’m from Buffalo and I admit, I take the wings for granted. And trust me, Buffalo makes the best wings! The city hosts an annual chicken wing festival every year and people wear big foam chicken wing hats (kind of like cheese heads but not cheese).

    LOVE this site!

  • Casey Kelley

    I want snow. :(

  • Danika

    Here in Alberta we’ve had snow since mid Oct. it snowed a lot. However NOW the weather is warmer so the snow is all gone. I love snow.. hate the cold that comes with it though.

    Mmmm Buffalo wings

  • laura

    Here, Angie -

    Or just buy a bottle of Louisiana Hot Sauce and follow the recipe on the bottle. :)

  • jess

    we don’t even have snow up here in my part of Canada yet! I’m jealous!

  • Jennifer

    I hear that. I finally got a treadmill (much to my boyfriend’s chagrin (he thinks our ceilings are too low and I’m going to hit my head when I’m walking!)). It’s the only way I’m going to get through the winter doldrums. Hang in there!

  • beachgal

    I moved south specifically to get away from snow. I do NOT miss it, tho I do think it can be quite beautiful. Now, if they even threaten freezing temps, the place goes crazy. You’d think, since 90% of the people here are FROM the north, they’d remember how to drive in what little snow we get sometimes. But no, they are complete idiots. Oh well. Comes with the territory.

    Hope Leta gets to play in the snow soon!

  • storm

    i lvoe your monthly letters to leta… it is a joy to see your family grow and develope together!

    your an awesome mom!


  • heidi

    bundle up and go for a walk anyway.
    snowshoes are totally fashionable and snowshoeing is a great workout.

    i live in new hampshire and can’t wait for our first significant snowfall.

  • Laura

    My friend, the wings have been at Hooters all along. You just had to believe.

    I’m jealous of your snow.

  • KS

    I can’t decide which I want more: snow or wings.

  • Susan

    25 wings and feet of snow. and the cutest baby and dog ever.
    your life is like my birthday EVERY DAY.

  • patti

    I can’t wait for the snow to arrive here because it means no more questions from our nosy neighbor!!!!

  • The Mighty Jimbo

    mush chuckles! mush!

  • cara

    I like the photo, but don’t understand why you didn’t blur the foreground and focus on the background snow.

  • Jill

    I live in Canada and have yet to see the white stuff. You lucky girl you!

  • Amanda B.

    I have a dumb question. How come you can’t walk in the snow? I’m asking because we don’t get the snow here in MS. We just get bone chilling sticky wet coldness for about a month.

  • the niffer

    Yep, we’re still waiting for snow in SW Ontario. It poured rain so much yesterday that I was wishing we had snow.

    My hubby’s a snow bunny – can’t wait for the stuff and never wants it to leave. But he’s from Goderich, ON where they have snow WEEKS, not days (i.e. school’s closed).

    I don’t mind shovelling snow, but only at night. It’s so quiet and all the neighbours are outside, so we visit and complain about the snow. It really sucks to shovel in the morning when you’re late for work.

    Can Chuck make snow angels? I think it’s safe to assume Leta can, thanks to the frog-on-back demo.

  • kim

    why can’t you go for a walk in the snow?

  • kim

    oh and – jeah, those russians are the sweetest. also – they can drink..

  • maryse

    i think you need to get this for chuck…

  • Shiz

    It’s 10C/50F right now in beautiful Vancouver, Canada. I agree with Angie M (#2). Snow is for having FUN in.

    Though I dd live in Kansas City, and then the snow/ice/coooooold thing really sucked.

  • Christilee

    Damiano’s Pizza is one of my faorite places to eat. Reading your blog makes everything here so much more exciting. When I drive up Barrigton to the 405 I look for that Guy/Girl in between the coffe Bean and Starbucks. Thanks Heather =)

  • Carol

    Here’s a recipe that my friend made the other night. Buffalo Chicken Dip. Awesome!! And not so messy as regular chicken wings.

    4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 2 pounds)

    1 (12-ounce) bottle Frank’s Hot Sauce

    2 (8-ounce) packages cream cheese

    1 (16-ounce) bottle blue cheese salad dressing (or ranch dressing if you prefer)

    8 ounces shredded sharp cheddar, Monterey Jack or a combination

    In a large saucepan, boil the chicken in water until cooked through (about 15 minutes), drain and shred with two forks.

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a 13-by-9-inch baking pan, combine the shredded chicken meat with the hot sauce, spreading to form an even layer.

    In a large saucepan over medium heat, combine the cream cheese and blue cheese dressing, stirring until smooth and hot. Pour the mixture evenly over the chicken. Bake uncovered for 20 minutes, then sprinkle the shredded cheese over the top and bake uncovered for another 10 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.

    Oh, dooce ~ the stories of love you tell!

    *faints with the kewteness of it all*

  • Laura

    Damn you dooce. I keep reading your story about the chicken wings (how can you not know about glorious chicken wings) and even though I am feeling nauseated from working where I work, I have to go have chicken wings. I HAVE TO. I AM DYING FOR THE WINGS.

  • DeAnn

    Can’t walk, car’s broken. Man, you’re really stuck!!

  • DM

    People, are you insane? I live in Minnesota (sometimes affectionately referred to as The Tundra) and I am dancing for joy that it hasn’t snowed yet. Dooce, you have my symphathy. Snow bad.

  • Daniel

    All of this talk of buffalo wings and pizza has mee thinking. I have decided to spend the weekend eating and drinking myself into a junk food coma. Party’s at my house. Bring your sleeping bag. (And a lighter so we can blue flame our buffalo wing farts).

  • Brian

    You gotta find a place that has all you can eat wings and all you can drink beer for 4 hours.
    That’ll keep anyone regular for the rest of the week.

    ps. just wanted to say hi, long time reader, first time poster. (its something about the wings and poop i guess)

  • Jeff

    I have to say I absolutely love to fart….but I look forward even more to my evening colon evacuation!!

  • Amanda


  • Leon about to be Crucified by the Right

    Now, I apologize ahead of time for this. I realize we’d moved on and away from the itchy red rash of political blabbering.

    ……but this is just great stuff

    The front page of yesterday’s UK Daily Mirror reads;

    “DOH! 4 more years of Dubya”

    “How can 59,054,087 people be so DUMB?”

    Made me wonder the same thing

    …..well, that and a whole lot of laughing

    ……oh, and the image is now framed in my office

  • Tamara

    I love Damiano’s! Particularly the dim lighting inside. “Is this my pizza?” “No that’s my hand.”

  • Girl Detective

    Just when I think I can’t enjoy your site any more, you do one of your monthly letters to Leta and I am floored.

    I got a sunbox a couple years ago to help me get through the Minnesota winters. But my baby has been waking up an hour earlier this week–apparently he didn’t get the memo on daylight savings time–so I haven’t been able to use it. I learned the hard way (wide awake at 3am) that you should use a sunbox early in the day or not at all.

  • Kristina

    Ew, snow. It’s 52 degrees here in Chicago, and I’m definitely not ready for snow yet.

    On Buffalo wings: I’m 20, and I’ve never had any either. I’m afraid of them.
