On This Evening of a Snow Storm in Michigan, Thousands of Ice Cubes Are Being Flushed Down Toilets

In our house tonight, in an effort to prod a snow day along, a spoon is under a pillow, jammies are on backwards (or should they be inside-out?), and ice cubes have been flushed.

Until the last few years, I'd never heard of these superstitions, even growing up around here. Wonder where they first started.

Last Winter, NPR took a shot at answering, here.
