Cold snap

It froze the past couple of nights. Some sort of storm came through. There was a little dusting of snow here yesterday morning, but nothing which stayed past morning coffee.

Apparently things were worse out in Dakota. The storm was big enough for the Grand Forks Herald to name it "Zach."

Zach needs a public relations consultant. He's not getting nearly the attention of Rita or Katrina. He's probably just as bad, but when you have people so widely scattered as they are in North Dakota, you just don't have the compelling pictures of jam-packed freeways.
