I fixed lunch quickly and headed back to my desk. It was too busy a Monday – dear Lord could it still only be Monday – to linger about.Continue reading “A little help”
Friday night into Saturday morning, we got snow. Not a lot of snow, but a very wet, heavy mess.
So mid-morning Saturday, after walkways (finally) got cleared, Continue reading “Is winter over yet?”
