Winter Wonderland

Finally got around to watching the easter eggs on the FotR disks. Why didn't anyone tell me that Sarah Michelle Gellar was in one of them? Very odd.

Big snow storm today, big enough that we closed work at four. The pick-up is not nearly as nimble in the snow as the Subaru was.

Tis the season to go crazy...
