Winter has arrived, the first snow-storm of the season. According to the local paper, January 12 has quite a "history of bad weather," and I was in town for some of it.  I remember the floods, the flooded office, tearing up the carpet, moving my office furniture upstairs, writing in front of the unfinished fireplace (separate story, house fire) draped with blankets to keep out the cold, installing the trench and sump pump, etc. Sigh...  Anyhoo, so far, so good, but there are some area cancellations, early dismissals, and so on. It was an icky morning, and somewhere a Humvee fell over, but no one was seriously hurt. I'm glad and lucky to be somewhere warm, and I hope you are, too.

Here's Tori Amos as a snow angel.

Stay warm, my friend, stay safe.

Thank you, Sandy, and you, too.

Here in the D.C. area it is unseasonably warm. Go figure. Especially after the incredible snowstorms we had last winter.

Stay warm and safe.

I felt like a fallen-over Humvee most of the day.
Snozzy preschoolers are leaving Kleenex drifts and slick patches of germs everywhere. Hope your weather is better for Friday the 13th.

We had unseasonable warmth, too, for a while, Maureen, and I was hoping it would long as it wanted. Maybe it will come back!

Nancy, I was just realizing today what tomorrow is! Which, you know, is how I roll.
