The headline on the front page of the Chronicle was "WINTER ASSAULTS NORTHEAST" which was followed by an article reporting the stopped up airports, snowed in passengers, and miserable weather conditions all over New England. And here I am about to enter this mess! Lexi has already arrived and reported that the weather is not as treacherous as she expected, but the taxi line took two hours. Hopefully by morning the traffic will have slowed down. My just under 50 pound suitcase and I will be heading to Liz's in a mere five hours. So, next time you hear from me I'll be reporting from NYC. Au revoir; wish me bon vacances!
