It’s not here yet. The much talked about storm of this new year. No snow yet. Rain has come. Our roads and bridges are ready. Most of us have hit the grocery stores and prepared for the worst. Memories of ice storms of our distant past still hurt. Nothing like the relativity of 55F inside your home to chill you to the damp bones.

When it comes we will be ready. You know it. It feels good to know you will not be taken off guard with the unexpected. Bring this storm along for a new trip in your already overwhelmed mind. Tomorrow the real snowfall begins. Each of us, looking in some way, for a real snow day. Most, if not all of us,
relish a force- shut-in and permissibly lazy day off. Time enough to watch your favorite DVD and eat too much comfort food.

When the real snow comes we will be ready. We promise.
