and on the Eleventh Day.....

...of February, there's light at the end of the tunnel!

If it weren't for the obvious earthly artifacts (houses, cars, lamp posts, etc.) this photo could easily be mistaken for one taken on the surface of the moon.

I don't know when I've been so glad to see the sun!  Even though there's still a foot of snow underneath what appears to be a "plowed" street.....the plowing happened between storms. During the height of the storm yesterday, the snow plows were ordered to stop. They were completely overwhelmed.

Things are quite a mess here in the Washington/Northern Virginia area, but that sunshine has lifted your humble webmaster-czar's spirits greatly!

There are still things to be concerned about.....like collapsing roofs, hazardous driving conditions, 5 foot (and worse) snow drifts, etc.

But frankly, today, I'm concentrating on the positive aspects of the storm.

#1 - The government has been closed for almost a week!
#2 - Al Gore is nowhere to be found!

I'll think of more as the day goes on. Please feel free to add to my list.
