Oh by the way, folks,
Today we celebrate the Julian-calendar birthday of Thomas Paine, born in 1737, or 1736 if you go by the version of the calendar that starts the year with March instead of January. Just think of the birth date confusion that musta ensued when he strolled into the neighborhood pub for his first legal brew! Anyhow, he was one of our nation's Founding Fathers.
Yesterday nothing happened. It got too cold for anything to happen. So then it snowed overnight. I suppose the Snow Vowel is gonna get another tour of duty as soon as daylight arrives.
And then this evening is gonna be another church pot luck dinner if it doesn't get canceled.
Signs of life
