January 15, 2002
The snows started coming down in the evening. Silently fell while we slept in our drafty rooms. At morning, I jumped in the Jeep, raced off to the pool. Not many people made the trek. It was still snowing and the plows hadn’t done much to the foot or so on the roads.

School’s canceled.

We gathered the troops-- Ellis, Alfred and Mark-- and made tracks on our day off. Stared at the abandoned cars. Wheels spinning as we gunned out of stop lights. And then there was the snowdrift. Plowed right into it up to the axels. Stalled dead.
