Very sorry to hear that. Is there an ETA for clearing the road?

Is the B&O Museum in Balti still in good shape? I haven't been there since the day before Desert Storm started [funny how we remember dates]. That roundhouse, at that time was very impressive. Second best railroad museum I have been to [first being in York in England].

It caught some hell a few years back when the roof caved in during a storm, but I hear it's OK now. Haven't been there yet, I guess I live to close to go there.
The place is an on and off again thing, only opens when the railroad has funds to support it.
You know the way it is, you never get time to see the good stuff close in, but you always make time to see the things you want to a distance away...

60 mph winds and numerous fatalities, I'm hanging my stocking right next to the exhaust stack.
