I really think it's time my 12-year-old son took the white crayon from the window sill. As kids everywhere know, if you want a snow day from school, put the white crayon by the window and turn your pajamas inside out. This year, the superstitions worked beautifully. The schools have now run out of snow days and I've run out of patience. Don't misunderstand me. I love snow and the way it brightens up the dark and dreary winter landscape. And now that I'm a college professor, I, too, get snow days off from teaching.

Here's a scientific experiment. Follow these directions:1. One day this summer take a red, vine-ripened tomato. One that you picked from your own garden or bought at a roadside stand. Take one that you've already kept sitting on your kitchen window sill for two or three days. Hold it in your hand. Does it feel warm? Good. Soft but not bruised or mushy? Good.2. Cut the tomato into slices, each about a quarter of an inch thick. Put them on a clean plate. Check your watch. Then set the plate on the kitchen table and sit down in front of it.3.

There's a lot more to building a shingled roof than you might think. James Barrett, the executive chef at The Westin Annapolis Hotel, found out recently when he built his first shingled roofs out of cereal. "It's a lot of work ... every tile on the roof was laid one piece at a time," Barrett said. "It's very hard to get it all perfectly aligned." The roofs topped houses that are part of a gingerbread village that Barrett built. The village, in the lobby of the Westin Annapolis, will be on display through Jan. 6 at the hotel.

Question: My mom's thriving gardenia started wilting, though the leaves are still green. It sits on a window sill. I'm sure it's getting winter drafts. Would the floor be warmer? Answer: The floor may not be better since heat rises. Gardenias like bright, not direct, sunlight. Try placing the gardenia on a well-lit table away from the drafty window with a steady 62-63 degree temperature. Watering could also be an issue. Advise your mother to avoid over-watering the plant, especially now in the winter when it uses less.

Tiny red bugs are crawling on my window sill. When I wipe them up, they smush red. Now what? Clover mites often show up in spring in buildings and homes until the natural checks and balances of predator insects in a healthy landscape keep their numbers under control. This year, their numbers seem to be up generally. They do not warrant pesticides. You can tape around the window until they disappear. Ellen Nibali, horticulture consultant, works at Maryland Cooperative Extension's Home and Garden Information Center, and David Clement is the regional specialist.

Question: As a gift, I was given a beautiful framed exotic butterfly. After I placed it on a sunny window sill, I was horrified to see white worms crawling around inside the frame! I've heard of invasive insects. Should I throw it out in a garbage bag or what? Answer: You are smart to ask. The damage done by imported pests is huge; the costs run in the billions annually. Many insect larvae, such as those you are seeing, can chew through plastic bags. Please immerse the entire frame in a bucket of soapy water for a day, then dispose of it, to insure that the larvae - and any hidden eggs - are dead.
