Up North Again

after a 2 week hiatus, I'm back up north. Last night the NW brought that great cold and snow, so I hit the road early this morning to Saranac Lake, where my good friend Nadia put me up for the night. The roads were choked with crummy drivers: a 1/4" of snow in Albany and you'd think these people grew up on the equator the way they were driving. The most contemptible are these granny drivers who crawl along through the snow while 4/5ths of their windows and car are still covered with snow. What putzes! You can't have it both ways, if you want to be cautious, stop and clean your windows and let the 15 cars behind you get by. But it's great to be back in Placid and Saranac on a real winter's night for a change. Already, it's -10F!
