It’s St. Patrick’s Day. One of my favorite days of the year.

Last week, I said that, Lord willing, I’d be in New Orleans for it this year. I guess he wasn’t willing. Thursday night a friend wrote telling me she cancelled her trip back east because of the big storm. “What big storm?” Then I looked at the weather news.

But hope spring eternal.

At 4 PM yesterday, my friend Bettina was driving me to the train station to get to the city to get to the plane to get to New Orleans. We were going at about 5 mph and if it wasn’t a total white out, it was a near one. Common sense prevailed and we turned around and headed back to Tivoli and sure enough as soon as I got back and checked the Internet, the flight had been cancelled.

Next year…
