This evening our region is being hit by a huge nor’easter. They are expecting up to three feet of snow around here, which is quite rare for down-state New York. The restaurants have all shuttered their doors, NYU has closed early and will be closed all day tomorrow. The city has shut down.

Apparently the word has gotten around. I have gotten emails from friends and colleagues in various points around the globe, including Paris and Beijing, wishing me luck.

Given that walking the short distance from where I work to where I live is not a hardship, for me this is mostly fun. I will get to hole up at home all day tomorrow, making stuff on my computer, raiding the fridge, having a “working day off”, and pretty much enjoying the peace and quiet.

Mother Nature is being very clear. She wants all of us hyperactive New Yorkers to go stand in the corner and take a time-out. I, for one, am not complaining.

    A huge snowstorm, or as we like to call it here in Minnesota, Tuesday.

    See, that is how it is. I got the news about the snow storm this morning and thought I better check on Ken. It’s good to hear you are at home and safe and not complaining. 😉 Greetings from a rainy day in southern Germany.
