Snow Days

To my son Tommy,

Well due to the winter weather, you have been off of school for the past two days.  My office has closed as well but with the tech advances that just means I get to work remotely and use my lunch break to shovel the walk instead of eat.  It beats traveling in this stuff.  Though a couple inches of snow is laughed at by other states of the union, they don't have to deal with Maryland drivers.  I am not sure if it is because they don't have much practice in the snow or if the underlying cause stems from elsewhere.  For some reason, Marylanders drive like they are the only people on the road and no matter how bad of a driver they are it is always the other guys fault.  Perhaps it is run over population from the clueless self centered egos in DC politics or maybe we just have our own type of special without common sense when it comes to driving a huge hunk of mass at high speeds on the roadways.  I have seen drivers all over the world, and though Marylanders don't top the list as the worst, they sure rank right up there.  But they say God protects fools and Maryland drivers (okay maybe not the original saying) so hopefully those who are on the roads will be safe.  Our biggest concern is everything is cleared to get your mommy to the hospital for surgery.  Two turtle doves left on the countdown.

Sincerely with love from your dad,
