Okay. It’s all my fault. Last week I mentioned how happy I was that it was March. I actually wrote, “We’ll probably get a March snow storm” but the “end is in sight.” (sigh) Now I’m staring out the window at nearly a foot of snow. But…the lights are (still) on and we are warm, which is more than I can say for earlier this week.
So, what’s there to do this weekend, besides shovel and/or watch snow melt? Lots! Read on and find something tasty to do.
