I Guess You Heard We're Getting Some Snow Tonight
January 26, 2015

It's not "just" snow, but thanks for your concern! This blizzard (a so-called "snow bomb") is basically a hurricane with snow, and all the resulting trees down, power outages, and infrastructure failures that go with it. We're not Canada or North Dakota, we're neither designed nor prepared for it. The biggest worry is losing power -- and heat.

Here in Philadelphia, we're only getting 10 inches and will duck the worst of the winds, but my son and daughter-in-law (who are expecting their first baby) are right in the NYC crosshairs. And one of my good friends will have the worst of it in Boston. So tonight I'll be saying a little prayer (as my mother would say) for everyone in the storm's path:

Can you help us out?
