Favorite Episodes: St. Patrick’s Day Delayed …

January (and February for me) is a time for looking back at the prior year, our wins and losses.   Favorite Episodes is a way for me to look back at what I’ve written in 2015 that was well received by my readers while diving into my blog stats and editorial calendar.  Over the next few weeks, I will be posting little or no new original content. Instead I am reblogging some of my most popular posts from 2015 and developing a Favorite Episodes Season Three page in the process.

Blog Closed Due to Blizzard Conditions

Snow Bushes2It has been over a month since I posted anything original here on WordPress.  In hindsight, I should have posted this picture on my blog during the month of February.

Here in the northeastern United States, the Boston area in particular, snow pretty much cancelled  everything for the month of February.  With snow days 8 or 9 depending on the school system (definitely a record amount for the short month of February) plus February vacation our children spent more days out of school than they did in school during late January and February. Businesses closed, there were several days where the state declared a state of emergency prohibiting travel for non-essential purposes. Continue reading “Blog Closed Due to Blizzard Conditions”
