Let it snow, and just stay home

In case you hadn't heard, it's snowing and public transportation is crawling toward a standstill. PHL reports that as of 4 p.m., more than a quarter of today's scheduled flights have been canceled. Runways will no doubt need to be closed periodically over the next 24 hours or more to clear snow. Amtrak has canceled a dozen trains in the Northeast Corridor.

Looks like a great time to hunker down and read a good book, until the shoveling has to start. Have a nice weekend!
