Yep, big snows here in Indiana. Schools closed. Roads bad. Heck, even the Y shut down at noon, though I did have to go in to teach one class...for which one kid (out of three) showed up. I've shoveled twice so far but the snow keeps falling and it's blowing hard. Hopefully, this is the last hurrah for a big winter.

I haven't gotten as much reading done as planned either. Very little, really. And the problem is I'm behind - still only two books read for the year and I haven't even started a third! I have three piled up and ready to go. I have magazines piled up. Several long-form comics to read. Oh well, I'll get to it.

Couple bit of good news today - "Battlestar Galactica" has been renewed for a fourth season of at least 12 episodes. And this week's episode of "The Office" is directed by Joss Whedon!
