What a week!

Lots of snow and ice! More than in the last several years. Sandy missed two days of work...it's really been a mad house in our community. People in panic mode and even fighting over milk in at the local  Wal-mart. There was an unbelievable fear..."Oh no! The blizzard of 2011! We're all gonna die!!" it's usually in the sedentary that panic...just an observation....I think we runners are more confident, and prepared, realizing we can endure a little hardship.
  Well, a little sun+wind+snowplow+salt= clearing roads! Very enjoyable 4 miler today! It sounds like we've more significant snowfall coming next week...better get to Wal-mart!!:) Peace!
