    Default OT - Christmas in Minneapolis/St. Paul-Int'l Airport

    It seems it's winter everywhere in North America.
    We're pretty well snowed in here. Not a chance of getting through the
    snow drifts in our laneway and I'm not about to start shoveling.
    A few days ago I received pictures from my ex-SIL showing the snow
    they got in New Orleans. How'd you make out George?
    Yesterday my 18 year old grandson left here via Northwest Airlines to
    visit friends in Portland, OR for Christmas but only made it as far as
    Minneapolis/St. Paul-Int'l before his flight was canceled because of
    bad weather at PDX.
    Right now it appears that the earliest he will get out is about 5:30
    PM Christmas Eve. If that doesn't happen the next available flight
    will be December 26th.
    I hope he doesn't have to spend Christmas day in MSP Int'l..

    Merry Christmas to all you r.f. preservers.

    In snowy Southern Ontario.

    We had about two inches of light powder snow. Stuff was as light and
    fluffy as a feather. If we get snow here it is usually heavy, wet stuff,
    this wasn't. Was gone by 1000 that morning.

    Was listening to talk radio this am on way to foot doctor. The guy on
    Accuweather, who, incidentally, I trust more than I do NOAA, says this
    winter will be the harshest winter in Europe and China in many year.
    IIRC in 57 years in China, what happened to global warming? I was hoping
    to have some beach property for sale before I go to the great canning
    kitchen in the sky. <BSEG>

    I also extend our wishes for a Merry Christmas to all. We are spending
    it as single parents for the first time in many years. All the
    descendants are busy about other pursuits. We are going to have a
    three-rib standing rib roast, which is cold aging in the fridge since
    Saturday and will stay there until Thursday and then be cooked and
    devoured. Some baked russets, some black-eyed peas I put up earlier in
    the year from dried peas, probably some home grown broccoli and
    cauliflower, and some fruit cake or something similar. Just the two of
    us humans and one purp dawg.

    He made it to Portland.
    Seems a few people didn't show up at MSP Int'l for their scheduled
    flights and he was second in the standby line. Even better, he ended
    up in first class. I guess even snow clouds have a silver lining.
