Well, it's more than theory now. Looks like I'm pending no more... :)
With half a foot of fresh snow on the ground -- and more annoyingly to me, a bit of ice -- to drive upon, I'm anxious to see how this all pans out in the coming non-holiday months. It sure would be nice when the snow goes flying to be comfortable saying to myself
Hey, why don't you put a pot on the stove, make a few hot chocolates for you and the family, and not head into the office this morning?
Because the office is wherever I would happen to be that day... ;)
