Wahoo! a four day weekend!

Northern VA woke to about an inch of snow covered with an inch of ice; that's all it takes to shut us down. What shall I do? Well, first I'm going back to bed so I'll check back later. I'm told it's moving up the east coast so most of you'll will be seeing some snow later on. It could get interesting - don't forget to check the weight of snow on your roofs. Stay warm, take care, Lisa

Lisa, thats funny. Here in New Hampshire there isn't any talk of closing down unless the snow is being measured in feet. After the last couple of ice storms and the power outages that came along with it, people freeked out and went out and bought backup generators. Not me, I just stoke the hand fed coal stove and stay warm and sit by candle light with the wife. Staying warm, drinking a good glass of wine with no phones ringing is kind of nice. It is times like that that make one think if we have progressed for the better.
