The Latest

Saturday has now been cancelled as well. Todd and I are going to make the best of today. Lunch out, a movie and then the Phillies/Dodgers game this afternoon. We’re also considering sleeping in our new sleeping bags tonight! On top of the bed, of course.

The Poconos – just north of us – have received over 4 inches of snow in some parts – a new record for this early in the season. They closed and were salting Kelly Drive in Philadelphia this morning because there were some icy slick spots. The air temps weren’t quite freezing, but the road was cold enough to ice up in areas.

So again, as disappointed as I am about missing out on the experience, I’m glad they had the foresight to cancel. Makes me want to try it again next year!

    Winter did start too early this year. Good call to change your plans. It is so freezing here, already. Those Pocono mountains can get really bad with black ice. Glad you made your own fun.XXXXX

    I'm sorry you didn't get the experience, but a wet, miserable, cold experience would've been awful. Still. What a mindset to change. Maybe next year will be your year, Jenster. Either way, you did a great thing for breast cancer research b/c your donations were accepted regardless of the walk.
