If you get some snow, I think yous should take a strand of lights and decorate a bush, shrub...etc. and leave it on for that one night to commemorate the special event of the snow. And take picture to show us.

Good evening,

I walked into a disaster at work, my employees were upset that the 3rd shifters left such a horrible mess. We worked as a team and got cleaned up and made the best of a busy, busy day. Relaxing now, my Boston Bruins don't start until 10pm they are out in Vancouver so it may be a late night. Go B's!


Have a good night!

I also tracked down a couple of the magazine stories online.
