Sitting in the radio station after crawling through ice to get in.

Thank goodness for 4-wheel drive. Fortunately they had already plowed King St. and I could park quite close to WSHC‘s studio in Kunicke Hall.

There’s about 2 inches of snow layered with a half inch of ice.  It took me a few minutes to scrape my car off, but it looks like the worst is probably over. The Weather Bureau says the temperature will go above freezing and we’ll have a little light rain and then overcast sun later this afternoon. Can’t wait.

Given the weather, I’m not sure if any of my regular walk-in guests will be on “Talk To Me” today. Hopefully folks will call in to 304-876-5369 and say hello.

The internet is up, so if you’re not in the Shepherdstown, WV, area you can tune in at http://897wshc.org. I’ll be on from 11AM until 1 PM ET.

Since it’s a great day to stay inside and snuggle up with your sweetie take advantage of it. There has been so little winter this year that this is almost like a vacation.

Christmas Eve and we are anticipating snow this weekend.

Elly and I will be going over to my daughter’s house this evening to have dinner with her and the boys (and drop of Xmas presents)… then will come home and wait for Santa to fill stockings.

I’m starting to get worried about the weather report (which I pulled down from the weather bureau this morning while broadcasting “Winners and Losers” on WSHC). It seems that snow will start tomorrow in the late afternoon and then it will continue snowing on Sunday and Monday. I have to head for Virginia Monday morning to pick up my Mother and bring her to a family get together at Penny’s house that evening and I worry that the driving will be horrible (although my new old car is an “All Wheel Drive” vehicle which should cope with whatever I encounter.)

My other daughter, Cassandra, and her family are supposed to be coming down from Connecticut, as is Buddy and his intended, Rachel, who are spending Xmas with Cassandra, Matthew and Milo this year… but bad weather could keep Cassandra from traveling (Buddy has no choice as he has to get back to work and school in DC and Rachel has to catch a plane for Wisconsin.)

I hope everyone out there has a nice holiday. I’ll be online from time to time and will check in, but the blog will probably be operating at a minimal effort. Next week we’ll be operating in full regalia!
