GREAT FALLS, Va. - Jan. 12.
A week ago, we were in the middle of a six-day siege in the freezer. Temps as low as one degree at National Airport. At our house, outside the District, it was three below zero.
Today, after a dreadful cold-rainy-dreary Saturday, we‘ve got sun. And green shoots in the front yard.
We also have a new grand-niece, in St. Paul, Minn. She arrived this morning, all 9 1/2 pounds.
