It's snowing in Washington. What that means is unbridled chaos. If certain unsavory mean spirited individuals or groups wanted to bring Washington DC to a standstill, they would need do nothing more than make it snow here. Schools close. People take time off of work to care for the kids who are not in school for the day or the week or more. In certain instances the Federal Government shuts down. The city just closes up. There is a ceremonial run to the store for toilet paper, milk, and bread. We already have the Duck Tape stored up. This city is over 150 years old and it still hasn't figured out how to plow snow. People flip out. Every snow is like the first snow ever. It's the Horror. The Horror. Posted by Hello

I am in Denver and I was wondering why my email traffic from Headquarters in DC just dried up suddenly. Someone wrote to me from DC: "it's snowing here. hang on to your weather better." But, it's not our weather. The sun is shining and the weather's been pretty good. And tonight I am taking an airplane to California, where the sun is shining too. It looks like the recent rain in California skirted along the Gulf Coast and went up the East Coast to DC where it apparently transformed itself into something of Biblical proportions by DC standards, which is anything more than 1 inch.

Thanks, Ron. Of course: it's tape for ducts, not ducks! Ducks don't need tape. I knew that.
