We poor people in Colorado right now are suffering through a major snow storm.
To while away the hours a bunch of us have been having long very deep discussions about how to measure the depth of snow using bananas. Yes, we've got nothing better to do so hey, may as well have some fun. It was all lots of silly fun until things got serious and someone mentioned the 'Hutzler 571 Banana Slicer', available on Amazon. Something nobody should ever try to live without. Make sure though you read the reviews first.
