It's 7 AM

The snowplows have passed us twice. School has been cancelled and the spousal unit is helping the minister shovel out the sidewalks at the Christian Church (which, come to think of it, is an exercise in futility). I am drinking coffee and reflecting that, if I wanted to get to work on time, I should have left already.

(Update: I am listening to the local talk radio station. A man has called in to say that he's watching his eighty-year-old neighbor shoveling her driveway. The deejay just hollered at him to get his *** outside and help her).

(Update #2: I am abashed. Brian's helping shovel out the church because there's a funeral this morning).

(Update #3: I am not going to work today).

Hats off to the deejay! Please pass on to Brian - thank you. I wish there were more men like him. Those poor people - having to mourn and fight a storm.

I ditto what Packrat said and have to say your pic looks just like what it looked like here this morning.

I am so glad I live in a mild climate. It must be really hard on the elderly that live alone to deal with a bad storm.
