In many places around the country, someone has forgotten to tell Mother Nature that it's not even Thanksgiving yet.
Take Buffalo, for instance. That northern New York city received nearly seven feet of snow last week. Yes, SEVEN FEET OF SNOW!
It was enough to drive its citizens to drink and its football team to play a "home" game in Detroit.
Fortunately, the good folks at the Toronto Zoo are here to make this early winter a little less awful, as they've released a video of a panda named De Mao "bear-bogganing," gliding around in his man-made environment and loving life in the snow.
Probably because he isn't being forced to play in Detroit...
When one is feeling down, panda bears are often useful animals.
