I will caution you on WALKING. It was a day very similar to this about 20 years ago that I slipped on the ice and broke 3 bones in my left wrist. If you slip, let yourself land on your butt, it’s padded and in some cases really padded. Bracing yourself for the fall is natural but can lead to disaster. WALK WITH CAUTION !
It’s obvious that snow makes adults act like kids and that’s a wonderful thing. My contention is that the more kid you keep in your heart the happier you’ll be. If it takes a snowy weekend to make people happier then so be it !
The Orlando Airport Shooting could have been avoided. For anyone to be allowed to carry a weapon as a carry on aboard a flight should be stopped. Make them ship the weapon via UPS, or FEDEX, if they can’t leave home without it.
