Mary pointed me to the lead image on nytimes.com:
I can't help but think this picture deserves a big 'ol LOL. This is the state of things in Illinois, isn't it?
I've had just the most hectic of days. It all began with a bit of a snow storm that made getting to work quite the adventure and then from one meeting to an ongoing line of traffic at my door. Other than a lovely lunch with my coworkers I've been swamped.
Tonight I'm looking for adventure.
I'll let you know how that turns out.
