      Great work getting back to it! We're in for some weird days in the UK. We've got the cold front from the US which hit us today and is competing with a warm front which means our temperatures will be all over the place over the next 2-3 days. It was mild earlier today and now it's close to freezing.

      It was pretty remarkable, Doug. We have yet to get out on the road since the county has not gotten to our cul-de-sac yet. But we did dig a path to the main street so that we could walk the dog and I plan to head out for my first run since the snowfall in a little while, so life is going well!

      I actually enjoyed this run since there were a few flakes falling here and there at the start and at the end we were right at the beginning of the storm that will turn into a blizzard that is expected to dump 2-3' of snow on us and create drifts up to 5 feet tall. I shouted out to some kids I recognized and at the end of the run I ran into some neighbors, who I mostly know from church, who were getting a last walk in for their dog before the storm. Very nice, Norman Rockwell kind of run...

      Thanks! We should be fine. Talk to Doug - he lives in the Chicago area which really gets hammered! On the other hand, they really have the equipment for it. I've driven in blizzards in Chicago and the roads were all remarkably clear despite horrendous rates of accumulation. We don't get enough snow to justify investing in that level of preparation so things scream to a halt here!
