Snowed In ! ! ! ! ! ! !

The best laid plans!  About 1/2 way through set-up of our booth for our trunk show at the Kennedy Center today, we were informed that due to a massive snow storm on the way, tonight's Alvin Ailey Dance performance, and the two performances tomorrow were canceled!  Thus in one fell swoop, three quarters of our sales for the weekend were wiped out.  Sunday matinee might  go on if the streets are cleared by then! Predictions are for 20 to 30 inches of snow in an area of the world where this amount of snow is very unusual, with very few snowplows, salt trucks, etc. compared to Rochester, where this would mean extra shoveling, but not an absolute shut down the city emergency!  Our federal government all went home at noon today!  I'm still putting a "Thank You" tag on this posting because we will be snowed in for about 48 hours with Anna and Gregg and Molly!  I'll take another picture in the morning and see how far up the trunk of that little tree the snow comes!
