Brrr: If you’ve been dreaming
of a White Christmas, you may also want to include in that dream some
snow plows for your hometown. While Nashville only received a dusting
of snow in the blizzard that’s going to give some elves fits the next
24 hours, the streets are sheets of ice and the sledders in my house
have declared conditions perfect. As for me, I’m old hat with this
stuff: When I was growing up in south Alabama, I would walk to school
(12 miles each way, both ways up hill) in the snow everyday. (Actually,
I did not see snow until I was 18 years old.)

My wife suggests I celebrate a snow day and roast my PowerBook on an open fire.
