 Happy to hear you have some winter as well as those of us up the coast a 
bit.  Ours started around the first of November and it has snowed every week 
since.  Three or four inches today with below zero and snow for Sunday on.  
We will get out of here tomorrow as there is some precip free weather 
predicted for tomorrow.  Following that will be four more days of snow and 
well below zero temps.  We have a whopping 2-1/2 times the heating degree 
days this winter compared to last winter.  We have snow and ice and snow 
under the ice.  On the other list there was talk of starting tomatoes.  That 
writer lives down the river a bit from me and I did not have the heart to 
comment it may be the 4th of July before we put out a tomato plant.  One 
hesitates to fly out of here as I do not like taking off in snowstorms and 
there have been several weekly.  Now Marge says driving south will not help.  
How far south down the coast, Marge, does one have to drive to find a place 
with no snow and ice?  Even jacket weather would be a break.
