A blizzard has struck and we have henceforth been banned to our houses for 3 days. The good news is, although it's negative degrees outside, it's warm inside----and inside is where the coffee is. It's also where the movies are, and the internet, and Downton Abbey, and although I'd like to say I've used these 3 days to be incredibly productive, that'd sort of be a white lie (NO WORRIES: I did do some artwork, and I read a whole lot.). At any rate, normal life will resume shortly, and next week school begins again. Meanwhile, let's stay warm.
