I woke up to quite the storm this morning (see forecast from weatherunderground below). I love it! It has to be about the best forecast I've seen in a few years. I almost did not post about it for fear of jinxing it. I have my fingers crossed. Can you imagine the news if a storm like this hit Manhattan or Boston? Patrick
