Closed for the Holiday

You might have already guessed this from the absence of any posting this week. I'd actually planned a couple of posts and I have a few family stories to share as well.

But it's been snowing here in Chicago. Or icing. Or raining. Or there's been freezing rain. Sometimes all of the above in what our weather forecasters so politely call "a winter mix."

Right now I'm ready to strangle Irving Berlin. He got all these people dreaming of a White Christmas -- but, brother, I wish they'd wake up. I also wish the slush and water mix at every street corner in the Loop weren't six inches deep.

The slush will be removed eventually. But the crumby weather has complicated a complicated time. I'm going to mellow out now for an hour or so, putting stuff away, getting out some correspondence here at the Undisclosed Location before plunging back into the Holidaze.

Limited programming should return next week. In the meantime, I hope you and yours have a very Merry Christmas... or whatever Winter Solstice Holiday you prefer.

I'd been thinking exactly what you said, each time I clicked to you this week, and some of last week.

All the best to you for Christmas and the New Year at the undisclosed location, the house and where ever you might roam.

We have also had a near endless "winter mix" over the past week. Merry Christmas too!

Hope you had a great Christmas.

I despise snow. I guess this comes from growing up in California and only venturing into the snow but rarely.

I hope you have a happy holiday despite the yucky weather.
