|One dark day full of snow|
Saturday morning at 7:30 a.m. was one gray morning. The day remained gray and forbidding. My wife and I were happy to stay inside watching hapless news people stand out in rising snow and water (inland or shore) with yardsticks and wind burn. At the height of ridiculousness, the news team in the studio asked the reporter and his driver to try to interview people walking in the street afterwards to burn up extra time. Several times the reporter tried to end the interview and several times he was asked again to interview someone who just wanted to get about his or her business.

soul(s) who shoveled so much of this walk!"
We were far luckier than some. There were deaths in this blizzard up and down the East Coast. We had none. There was lots of property damage. We were spared. The city workers have been keeping the plows out day and night. They did a great job on our street yesterday, even clearing snow out in front of the driveway, something I expected to have to do today. I'm grateful.

With the sun shining and blue skies out today, one thing to remember when the crises hit is that they do pass. There is calm after the storm, sun after the snow, neighbors helping each other cope, and much more socializing than usual as we all get out to look around after it's done.
