RE: something we can do about ... weather

You missed nothing but nasty driving conditions and a whale of a lot of
shoveling!!!  O.K., so it would have been really beautiful if I hadn't had
to drive in it or walk in it, especially if we had any sun to shine on it.
It's snowing a little bit again this evening.  The kids were all out of
school today for Presidents' Day and wouldn't you know it, now that most of
the major thoroughfares have finally been plowed, they closed all the
schools for tomorrow! LOL!!!  (In truth, many secondary roads are still
treacherous.  Maybe that is where they come up with the statistic that
you're more likely to have an accident within 2 miles of your home?)

Well, it skipped right over me.  Lots of wind and bitter cold, but very
little snow.
