It's snowing!

This marks twice in two years that it has snowed where we are. Last year it snowed in February, but we missed it - or, I should say, we drove through it on our way to Florida! We didn't see it lying on the ground at home, except in the newspaper photo that came out the following week. That's what it's like here, it snows so rarely, and the town is so small that snow, especially snow that sticks long enough to be photographed, makes headlines!

Happy New Year to everyone. I'm personally thrilled that the President has had three major successes in the lame duck Congress: the tax/unemployment insurance legislation. the repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell," and the New Start Treaty ratification. Quite a spectacular close to a dismal year!

So let's hope 2011 will continue on the upswing. The South is behind the curve in economic terms: things are about at their worst right now. But the rest of the country seems to be reviving a bit, so I'm hopeful that we'll follow suit come summer.

Have a wonderful holiday and a fine, productive, safe and healthy year ahead!
