My brother's car is stuck in the driveway, there is at least 16 inches of new snow out there and it's still coming down. Earlier this evening I went out with the dogs to clear a path and measure the mountain of white stuff that had come down. Schools are closed for tomorrow, I've cancelled most my appointments, the police are asking people to stay off the roads. My friend Joan called from her home near Sugarbush where it is almost always winter and in her typical eccentric fashion told me she was not canceling her doctor's appointment tomorrow and would I like to meet her for a burger in Stowe. It's not going to happen. We will be busy here trying to dig out the cars.
