It's a Lovely Day for a Snow Cone, Don't You Think?

OK, so summer has arrived with a wallop this year. It sucks. But we can spend the next few months either complaining about how underwear-meltingly hot it is, or we can do what little we can to relieve the misery that is summer in the Midwest.

How about a snow cone? I had one just yesterday -- orange-pineapple, from Kirkwood's Tropical Moose -- and it helped battle the midday stickies. Need a reminder of how awesome snow cones can be? Read my survey of the local snow-cone scene from last August and then check out this slide show of local snow-cone stands.

You'll feel cooler already. Promise.
