Whereas the distinct lack of snow is bad for our local economy at all levels from the Town and Ski Area to small business and every individual, and the need of snow is almost universal,
Also whereas the great State of California may dry up and blow away, without said snow, and we also seek a greater good,
Please forward this resolution and prayer to our State Assembly, Senate, and the Governor, of said State of California,
And beg their resolutions resound our own prayer for snow.
Wherefore tourism is off substantially as a result of said lack of snow,
And the weak national economy compound this lack of snow,
And there are no costs or downsides to this proposition,
Whereas the Town is hurting financially even with a good snow year,
And as we are snow farmers as Dave McCoy has said,
I beg the indulgence of the Mammoth Lakes Town Council,
I pray the Council will support a resolution in favor of snow,
I pray you will join me and many of our citizens in a prayer for snow.
A suggested sample prayer:
“Now I lay me down to sleep, and pray to wake and find three feet.”
We also express our appreciation of the miracle of manmade snow
But can see the limitations and expense of this help
Please support this timely resolution in a non-partisan display of cooperation. Make it unanimous. PRAY FOR SNOW!
The above was read by Davis during public comment at Wednesday’s Town Council meeting.
