Snow day.

Mrs Philocrites cancelled Sunday school this morning, so I made pancakes. Somehow our paper carrier managed to get the Globe and the Times to our front porch. The snow plows made it to our side street by 8 a.m., something almost as rare as getting the paper at all when a major snowstorm hits overnight. The snow is still falling, but I shoveled about 14 inches of powder from the sidewalk a little while ago when the storm let up a bit. All the birds in the neighborhood roused themselves to eat from the birdfeeders in the neighbor's yard before the wind kicked up again, but otherwise it's very quiet here in Cambridge. Here's the backyard view from our kitchen window this morning. I hope everyone else on the east coast is keeping warm!

I went to church and only five people came: three to drop things off for coffee hour or our Chocolate Auction, and one because his mother had died at 7 this morning and he wanted to come to church. So I got to sit with him in the sanctuary and talk. Worth the schlep over.

Happy blizzard!

Saying hi from the other end of the spectrum, here in Los Angeles. It's hot. 86 degrees and rising, and nary a breeze to be found. I'm miserable. The drive home from the church in my non-air-conditioned car left me sweaty and grumpy.

And so the day I never thought would come has arrived; I wish I were in the snow with you! Your photo left me very nostalgic for the chilly Ohio winters of my youth.

I'll send warm thoughts your way if you'll send cool ones west!

Here (So Cal), all warm and cozy. The place was packed (literally) and we talked about family values. Liberal family values.

But playing in the snow would be fun.
