Tuesday Morning, March 13 - SNOW DAY!

1) Ye Instytytte proactively announced yesterday that it would be closed today due to the latest nor'easter. Grateful for a day in my home. Just after 9 AM, the frosting is visibly thicker on the trees I see from my parlor window.

2) I wasn't going to read the news today, but sweet mercy goodness, one look at the Times and the sh*tsh*w that is our kakistocracy -- today it's a car crash I don't want to see, but from which I can't look away.

3) One year ago today we had a blizzard and a snow day - and it was the office's first-in-a-long-time 24-hour giving challenge. This year at least the giving challenge is tomorrow!
