Actually, though that comment and the others were intended to be joshing and
tongue-in-cheek, on reflection, I think they were dead center, X-Ring
accurate - - especially for the more local folks. A lot more could have made
it with a little effort. I take a risk every time I drive to work - - or to
the grocery store! The drive do DC was a bit hairy until we got out of
Jersey, but not that bad. I'll give the NJ Highway Dep't credit for having
things well in hand and keeping the roads passable - - even to ignorant on
ice Southerners like me! I fully understand the problem in areas where it
was worse, but a lot of LOCALS and folks from less hard hit areas wimped out
as well - - - so RASPBERRIES to them!!
Sorry you couldn't make it, Todd, and I really do understand. The 1st BN NJV
was there in red coats, however, the Loyalist presence was preserved.
