The snowstorm predicted for the Northeast did not live up to its billing this morning, though the wind and drifts and cold were sharp. Two feet turned out to be six inches in many areas and transportation systems, schools, and businesses were closed for protective purposes. Here, the snow is tickling still and the wind is whipping snow-beards off the roofs. In Connecticut to the south, my daughter says that what is six inches here is 30 inches there. Likewise, to the north, more significant amounts were recorded and are expected.
While discombobulating, I always like the increased level of kindness and cooperation that springs up during a "natural disaster." It's nice to walk the walk when it comes to "we're all in the soup together."
