Rule 16 of 2024 Rules for My Daughter

Don't use yellow snow to make snow cones, stay away from red snow, and for the love everything that is good--made a wide berth of the brown snow. Since we live in Memphis, TN this rule will only be used once a year for one day and usually in late January or Early February.
