This is old news. Been known for many, many decades. Sheesh.
Watch out where the Huskies go, don’t you eat that yellow snow.
Huskies + yellow snow = ick.
Oh my gosh you mean there’s BACTERIA all around us?!?!?!?
what about watermelon snow?
This may be one of those areas where knowledge is a dangerous thing, or what you don’t know can’t hurt you. My mother spent a bazillion hours admonishing us on the downside of eating snow. It didn’t take. I, and nearly everyone of my childhood buddies, ate snow by the barrel. I don’t think I EVER heard of anyone getting sick from it.
OT but, My dog loves to eat fresh snow... he must like the sensation of the cold?
The saddest change is that kids can't just walk outside and play anymore because of all the sick and twisted b@stards out there.
When I was a child I pushed off the blackened, polluted snow on top so that I could get to the good, tasty white snow underneath. Somehow I've made it to the ripe age of 39.
There's some speculation that the reason kids are allergic to everything under the sun these days is because their parents are trying to raise them in a "bacteria-free" lifestyle and their bodies aren't building up immunities the way they should.
Quick - lock your kids in a padded room until they turn 21!!
Dogs eat snow. Rabbits eat snow. Moose eat snow. Birds eat snow. That’s not all they eat, especially the dogs—you don’t want to know.
What? No fallout worries anymore as of 50 years ago?
My kids - age 21 and 15 - have never ever eaten snow.
Of course we live in south Texas. They’ve only seen snow once in their life.
Nanny Staters are relentless in their quest to be sure that NO ONE, ANYWHERE has ANY FUN at ALL.
I once read that part of the reason why kids today have so many allergies is because we no longer have them outside for so much of the day.
In the olden days they were in the fields with their mothers. More recently, they’d be outside playing at recess and getting dirty.
Well, I am 59 years old and I still like standing out in the snow trying to catch a snowflake on my tongue. It’s probably not a good idea to fill up on the stuff, but I am not going to worry about a little snow.
Don’t drink from creeks though....I’ve done that, only to find that the cattle were upstream. ;>)
