Last night we had our fourth major snowstorm in as many weeks. With minor ones in between. It was another blizzard that dumped over a foot of snow on top of the six or seven feet we already had.

Good news? We haven't lost power even once. Yet.

Bad news? Another storm is coming Tuesday. I'm starting to worry a little about the roof.

R.I.P. Bob Simon.

Dear Mike -- I join in your noting the death of CBS correspondent Bob Simon. He'd reported on dozens of wars and other international crises -- and died in a traffic accident in New York.

We just saw his final "60 Minutes" piece tonight -- about a cure for Ebola; it was decent, though possibly not what he'd have wanted for his swan song.

Warmly, Justine

Hi Justine,

I'll definitely be watching the tribute CBS does for him on 60 Minutes this coming Sunday.

I think you got the snow that was meant for us. Sorry about that.

Do you have a roof rake? Or any way to pull some of the snow off your roof? I'd worry too. I rake the shallow-angled part of my roof after heavy snows.

Please come and take it away!

Yes, but the roof rake doesn't reach back too far. Now they're saying we won't get much snow tomorrow, so I think we'll be okay, and the possible storm for this coming weekend may also turn out to be no big deal.

My roof rake needs about 3 feet of extension -- and I may hunt down an extension piece. But even pulling what we can reach off the roof makes me feel a little better about the structural integrity of the den (which is where my roof is really shallow).

I've got about 5 or 6 inches of fresh snow out there today. Gotta go shovel some of it. *sigh*

Dear Leftie (and Anais!) --
I feel sorry for everyone in the Northeast this month -- it has been beastly for you guys for weeks on end.

Warm hugz! Justine

Thanks Justine!

Spring is coming, isn't it? :)

Well, yes, it'll be along by April, I suspect.

My SigOther Joanne has commitments in DC that will take her north next week -- and I'm sorry for her having to face weeks more of Arctic Vortices (the proper plural; you could look it up...)

I still have five weeks or so down in Vero...
