    The title is from a sign on the Mass Pike last evening. Needless to say it's a pretty big snow storm so far- All State roads were closed at Midnight. Lots of serious drifting Snow and I guess the folks down on the Cape are dealing with flooding as well.
    One of the more well known passages from the Bible (thanks to "The Byrds") comes from Ecclesiastes 3. It teaches us to deal with things with equanimity- things come and they go. "To every thing there is a season"- but when winter hits and you are trying to clear your driveway with 40 mph winds- it doesn't always feel like this season will end !!


    "To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
    A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
    A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;
    A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
    A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
    A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
    A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
    A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace"

    This is what it was like on Sunday at the Shaws Supermarket:
    You would think that people in New England might deal with these things a little better :)

    Stay safe Bruno! That picture is crazy. Took me a second to see the outline of a tree and house in there. This picture reminds me why I took a job in the South instead of Boston not long ago!

    So this is what it looked like when I opened the side door. Gotta love New England . I was supposed to be in South Texas today but Logan Airport closed yesterday afternoon. My wife was grateful that it was me outthere and not her :) Snow at the door.jpg

    I hope you keep your power, Bruno! (And by the way, I understand the NFL is investigating if if the Patriots were responsible for underinflating the the weather predictions for NYC.)

    It was a nice 67 and sunny down south today, almost broke a sweat on my way to the truck. Stay warm up there!
