window in the snow

Thanks, Ross!

I just got off the phone with a friend in Minnesota.

He said that since early this morning the snow has been nearly waist high and is still falling. The temperature is dropping below zero and the north wind is increasing. His wife has done nothing but look through the kitchen window all day. He says that if it gets much worse, he may have to let her in.

“That will definitely be the big one,” said Gerrard. “Everyone is waiting to hear what the Supreme Court says.

Brilliant. Sue the electricity companies. They either (a) shut up shop or (b) push up the power prices to pay for the legal costs.

Win-win if you are a lawyer, I guess.
