The Jingle Bell Run That Wasn't

Oh, the weather outside is frightful
But inside, it's so delightful
And since we've no place to go
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!

Oh, but we did have some place to go! Our spring TNT team was going to have our annual jingle bell run today. It started snowing around 5PM yesterday, and by 7PM, we had a couple of inches of snow. The forecast didn't look so hot, so Coach Vicki cancelled training for the first time in six years. And it was a good thing, too - by this morning, I would guess we had 15 inches of snow. After six or seven years of hardly any snow, we now have had back to back winters with major snowfalls for this part of the world. Given that we historically average 14 inches of snow a year (with much less than that lately), a 15 inch plus storm is pretty big.
Nothing to do but relax and enjoy the scenary today, and revel in Villanova's football championship last night. Here is what my neighborhood looked like today.

I told my team about you guys canceling your training. I hope you guys dig out of it soon.

Yeah you hardy Michigan folk would just strap on your snowshoes, put on a flannel shirt over your tee, and just keep running!
