From the Atelier of our President:
Where is our promised snow? My sister called this morning; they’ve got 3 inches so far in Natchitoches, Louisiana, a place that rarely sees snow. She is thrilled! Of course everything has been shut down and cancelled over there so she’s got a long weekend at home. They may get up to 7 inches before the front moves out.
I am happy with sun, of course. And thankful that I live in an area where we can have snow one day and sun the next! And, if you don’t like the weather, wait a minute!
We’re anxious to hear how Kip liked Alaska and look forward to a report from her. She should now be back in the warmer climes of Texas.
