Great work by some dedicated pax!  Cold, windy, wet. NOT the great blizzard of the decade however. Folgers is 5 for 5 on the merlot splashing. Made it to the bear crawls and through them though! Good man.  Extraordinary week for the nation.  I remember 1968. Reminds me of 1968. Total chaos and that’s not good. But I will also say that where chaos and adversity exist, so does opportunity! So my question is how will you prepare and make it happen? We’re here to help. Be different, be disruptive, and get at it. It’s expected. F3 prepares you for that. That’s what we do. When the world goes crazy we calm down and get at it. A power greater than us controls. We merely do the work he asks of us.
