Snow and Chance Happeneth To Them All
In case anyone's wondering, the pace of discovery has slowed a bit around these parts today. We've got a whalloping pile of snow out there, verging on about half a meter, and I'm blogging from my fortified position at home. No French onion soup today, although I do have a couple of home-made pizzas in the oven as I speak.
Science should be resuming tomorrow, though, thanks to the snow plows. I find, having grown up in a part of the country where there were none (and where everything just shut down a couple of times per winter), that I'm still impressed at the efforts that go into cleaning the roads. My thinking, though, is that people who grow up under these conditions take road-clearing as some sort of natural process - of course the highways will be clear; they always are. A good look at a local street that's had traffic and a foot of unplowed snow on it for a week would be quite a revelation.
Update: for those who've asked, my company was officially closed today, which I very much appreciated, even though I do take the train in to work. Driving in to work, now that would have have been a real treat. . .
