Colorado town can now throw snowballs thanks to a 9-year-old

If you ever happen to find yourself in Severance, Colorado and you’re tempted to chuck a snowball, don’t worry you won’t be subject to a fine…anymore.

Yes, thanks to 9-year-old Dane Best, who thought it absurd that you legally couldn’t throw a snowball in his town, took up the issue.

The child went before the town council of Severance to speak out against the 100-year-old ban. The century old ban actually, believe it or not, classified snowballs as missiles.

When making his plea to the town council, Best said “I think it’s an outdated law. I want to be able to throw a snowball without getting in trouble.”

Hard to beat that kind of logic, right?

You’ve got to wonder what in the world would’ve ever moved a town to actually outlaw snowballs, especially a town in a colder climate.
