Here we go. It snowed all day yesterday and turned the backyard into a winter wonderland. It also turned the Jetport departures upside down. Elenka was scheduled to fly south to be with her family for a few days, but after repeated delays, that would have caused her to miss her connection at Laguardia, she called, and I ran in and picked her up. Spending a night in a Laguardia lounge, wrapped in a space blanket or a night in her own comfy bed? It was a no brainer. By noon today, she'll be in the land of oranges, and this winter setting will be well in her rear view mirror. Cue the dancing girls. Unwrap the cigars. Tap the kegs. Turn on the Patriots. It's a batchelor weekend! Ah... who am I kidding?! I'll probably spend it vacuuming! So let it snow!
