don't get me wrong, i completely sympathize with those whose lives get disrupted and upended by storms like this, but it helped me tremendously in that traveling today was much easier without usual traffic numbers. i came sailing through hartford with hardly any cars at all to be seen. all the way north to good ol' maine, the roads were less traveled by hordes, which made driving in the nearly gale force winds easier than it would have been. maybe, just maybe, we can squeak by halloween without snow, you think? wouldn't bother me a bit. i can wait.
