I found it this summer and, after last winter's overabundance of snow, I held onto it just in case.

I'm glad for my sake I got to see it, but sorry for your sake that you've had to use it!

Image It snowed again Thursday night. This time almost 8 inches of the heavy wet stuff. About 30,000 homes are still without electricity, but we're not one of them. The best part of this snow storm is the creative way the headmaster of Moses Brown School let his students know there would be no school yesterday.

He seems to have a lot of time available to make movies :).

His school is an historic institution. It was founded in the 1780s by Quakers and serves boys and girls from nursery through high school. I had a chance to teach there. It was tempting to work in a school that provided everything, but that was when I was just out of the Peace Corps and a save-the-world idealistic. so I chose to teach in the public schools instead. MB is a great school, but I think I made the right choice.

Meanwhile, we're getting another 6 to 10 inches of snow and all Rhode Island schools are closed again today.

We've had the weirdest winter weather pattern. We've had 3 substantial snowstorms, a few minor flurries, and temperatures fluctuating from -9°F (-23°C) to 62°F (18°C). Crazy.
