Snow Alert

How can Virginia stand another snow storm? Thought I heard the news say that some parts of that state should expect one to two feet.

Insane.

Brian drove down to Annapolis this afternoon. He needs to be there when the movers arrive tomorrow morning. They'll be picking up a small collection of furniture we are taking from his dad's old house. This is Brian's last trip down there. The last trip for any of us. The house is sold and his dad's wife is moving back to St. Louis.

Brian doesn't notice that on these last trips down there, he always packs the shirt he wore the day his dad passed away. He was with him.

I watched as he packed it again today. The mind is a curious thing.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the snow doesn't hit Maryland until he is well on the road to NYC.

Did he get out in time?

Yep! Thank goodness. Can you believe it did not snow a drop up here? How is that possible?! I feel sorry for you all in VA. It's getting ridiculous.

He got home in time for our blizzard.

The mind is curious, especially in regard to grief. How I wish there was a way around it.

Stay warm and I hope you have power.

That line about Brian's shirt,very nearly made me cry... Goes to show that the soul, or maybe just the unconcious, is always 'alert'...Wonderful.
