Kish and I traveled to Poughkeepsie today for Russell’s art show — more about that in a minute — but of course the weather interfered with our plans. We were to fly to Philadelphia, and then to Newburgh, New York. Our flight to Philadelphia went off as planned, but when we landed in the City of Brotherly Love the snow was cascading down and our flight to Newburgh was canceled. The next flight was not for another 12 hours, trying to take the train would have involved a delay nearly as long, and we therefore rented a car to drive up to Poughkeepsie. It was slow going as we passed through some near white-out conditions and snow-covered roads, but finally we arrived. It is still snowing even as I type this.
I think I speak for everyone in the Midwest and Northeast when I say, Spring cannot get here soon enough.
