So I am, frankly, dismayed to find that we’re going to be spending this weekend under a weather warning for snow and ice and all of the horrible things that come with that. If I wanted to have to deal with that I would have stayed up-country.

Just a quick post to say that I am, indeed, alive and kicking. Although I’m trying to at least not kick anyone too important.
