Re: Nor'easter

To all those folks in New England who got real snow/wind/ice this weekend I hope the power's on, the scotch is on the rocks, the fireplace is crackling and FerretChaser has let the girlfriend in to snuggle on the couch.

My sarcasm was directed to the weather twirps in the Philadelphia media who were hyping this as the next storm of the century. For us it was far from it.

And somehow I have an image of the SailNet Canadians laughing at us weak knee'd Americans having trouble with just 30 inches -- or what they call a "dusting" in Canada.

ďThe sail, the play of its pulse so like our own lives: so thin and yet so full of life, so noiseless when it labors hardest, so noisy and impatient when least effective." - Henry David Thoreau
