I bought a brand new six pack of toilet tissue last night but left it in the trunk of my car. Now I gotta trudge out into the driving blizzard to retrieve it. Uh...fairly soon.

If I don't come back...well wait till first light and send out a search party.

wait a minute, how does that go into making french toast?

unless, it's an intentional red herring to throw us off the trail of the great French Toast Conspiracy!

We dodged a bullet here. Six inches became two inches. Most of it melted.

30 inches my friends.

Nooooo..not that. The snow. Thatsalottadangsnow!

But it's beautiful!

I'm sorry swp perhaps the excess of snow has dulled my senses but I didn't get your email at all.

Mr Barber if you're heading east start reading Jack London novels quick. Another front moving through on Tues.

Uh. Oh.
- I love to find adventure. All I need is a change of clothes, my Nikon, an open mind and a strong cup of coffee.

beautiful until we start shoveling. 3 feet was the "thin" part here, at least in my yard and sidewalk. the drifts were 4-5 feet, with a whopper of 8 feet on the back of my house covering the back door. not fun.

my reference to the great French Toast Conspiracy is what is confusing you? Think about it. Right before it snows, everyone buys out all of the grocery stores of milk, bread, and eggs. wah-lah! french toast. but why is everyone making french toast? it's a conspiracy! (Frank shoulda been all over this one.) even Mayor Nutter of Philadelphia mentioned it on his news conference last night before the heavy stuff started coming down.
