You always have to look on the bright side

Last week's marrow-freezing cold did not translate into mountains of snow or rivers of ice here in New York City. (Knock wood.) Upstate New York has been less lucky. And by "upstate" I mean UPSTATE. As in near Lake Ontario. As in near the Canadian border. Meanwhile, the Hudson Valley, where I grew up, is experiencing the expected cold temperatures, but no snow (yet). Le Sweetie and I were hoping to go skiiing with friends this month, but somehow I don't think that's going to happen.
