We got snow!

Took long enough, until the second half of January, but it finally came.
Took long enough, but I’m actually writing about it!
Remember, in my field, snow means work rather than a day off. Also, I was getting ready for a visit from my brother and sister-in-law. More on that within a few hours. (Yes, ladies and gentlemen, two posts in one day. And yes, the next one has been almost ready to go for a week.)
A few weeks ago, we had some flurries. Not really picture-worthy except for Yeti.

Then, there was a little snow, two Wednesdays ago (Jan. 20).

Just a dusting. Didn’t have to do much but look.

tight car little snow
New car. The windshield wipers did everything

But the big stuff came last Friday (Jan. 22).

Pretty!

Yes, it’s still a big deal for me. I lived in Florida for about ten years. I hadn’t seen snow in about four years, since a cousin’s bat mitzvah in Pittsburgh. And the news makes such a big deal about it anyway. I have no apologies.
Yeti loved it! She hadn’t seen snow in years but remembered what to do and spent more time outside than usual.

I didn’t know there would be so much snow, so early in the morning, so I ended up working from home.

This would’ve been the better of the cars to drive.

You can’t tell there was a sidewalk and street under there, somewhere.

Luckily, Daniel and Jennifer would get to see it when they visit, and ski in fresh stuff in North Carolina.

About the author

The journalism “business” has changed — from standards to platforms to layoffs — along with the American public, and I’ve managed to survive somewhat on my own terms.

I started in 1994, becoming an award-winning and respected TV newscast producer.

Even better was creatively producing websites and social media, and serving as a station's digital media manager — writing news, creating graphics and getting evidence of growing my audience here in the nation's fourth largest market, Philadelphia.

I also taught first grade for eight years. My principal saw my class website and made me electronic gradebook manager to assist co-workers when we stopped using paper gradebooks.

In 2018, I took courses and earned the Google IT Support Professional Certificate.

In 2019, I was a freelance newspaper reporter, but enjoyed copy editing and reviving the publication’s social media even more.

That got me striking out on my own with a local news website to join the blog I created, designed and write.

Ask me about all the details.

I did drive Uber to make ends meet until I started as a customer service representative at one of the world’s largest web-hosting companies, with more than 8 million customer contracts and hosting more than 12 million domains.

With classroom and newsroom experience, I know how to prioritize, analyze and take the best course of action. Getting results means attention to detail, following through and following up.
