Why does snow look so light but is actually so heavy?

Why do people go to a fish and chips place and ask for the fish that tastes the least like fish? (I really did witness this tonight...)

Proof that pretty much no one in Little India actually lives there is evidenced on snow days when most of the restaurants are closed (even on Valentine's Day).

Thinking about merging my food blog into this blog.  Which means I'll occassionally post foodie things here. I just haven't been feeling foodie for a long time and I hate to see a foodie blog wallow like that.  Any thoughts? Of course this means that things on my 101 things list will need to be modified to reflect this but I think I could make it work.
