Now this isn't to say that today has been altogether unpleasant. A friend was kind enough to send me a link to a toy I wouldn't mind having in my arsenal (if, that is, I have to stay in a climate where snow falls): a Snowball Launching Crossbow.
I think the seminarians at Bishop Simon Bruté College Seminary could especially use a small stock of these. They do live in a castle, after all.
But fear not, you esteemed Hawaiians! There are snoballs you can use, too:
I hate coconut, too.
