Note From the Deep Freeze
Much of the country is suffering the effects of an Arctic blast. Chances are, that includes you. It certainly does me. And how! It's colder here than it's been in years, and I am not pleased. Tonight, we're looking at 14 degrees; tomorrow night, 6. I admit I've gotten spoiled by our mild Virginia winters in recent years. Maybe all of us who are suffering the ill effects of bona fide Winter can fool ourselves into thinking it's warmer by thinking about sun and sand and beach music. Just because we're bundled up in long johns, parkas, and boots and waddling around like Abominable Snowmen doesn't mean we can't think about Summer -- and perhaps generate a little heat in the process.
