Ed Cone is writing by the fire:
We have electricity, which puts us ahead of about two million of our neighbors. The storm dumped enough snow to cover the grass and then coated it with ice, so the sledding has been good all day. No school of course–one of the nice things about a North Carolina childhood is missing school on the mere suggestion of snow–and Guilford County Schools have already announced they’ll be closed tomorrow. I could have driven to my office, but why bother, I’m on deadline anyway, so I wrote in front of the fire for a while, and now I’ve hidden myself away in the bedroom.
