Snowpocalypse Now

Hold onto your hats, folks, because a big fat blizzard of epic proportions is apparently heading our way, right in time for the Christmas season.

Some upset to people’s holiday plans is expected, and I think my family may end up having Christmas at some point, but probably not this week.

The scanner is going a bit wild with reports of people who have fallen and cannot get up, people who are stuck in vehicles, and worse, some very severe-sounding car collisions (we’ll have something on this as soon as we can). Please, please be careful out there!

Personally, I just got back from a 10-day vacation, so I’m a bit bewildered and overwhelmed by everything that’s going on, particularly the untimely death of one of my very, very favorite sources, Andrea Ruesch, who touched countless lives in her work with 4-H in Jackson County.

I didn’t know her very well, but she was a funny, gracious, articulate and intelligent woman who made a very real difference in many people’s lives, and she will be sorely missed.
