Let It Snow

Good morning! It's been awhile, but this is a time for an update. First, the negative. Here in New Jersey, we recently decided to have a lt. governor so the senate president would not wear two hats should the governor be away. OK. Made sense. We have a lieutenant governor with a salary, staff, pension, etc. BUT both Kim and Chris are away so Steve Sweeney is acting governor! Why did we bother? Personally, I feel if the governor decides to leave the state, the lieutenant governor must stay in New Jersey. Is it fair? Who knows, but RHIP!! Now the positive. Neighbors. During the last 24 hours my neighbors have been a goodsend. The front of my house has been shoveled and salted, my car brought back, and a good portion of the street cleared for parking. Special thanks to Michael Ley, Jason Neill, and Brian Nugent. Yesterday afternoon, Michael Ley and his lovely wife asked all the residents if anything was needed - you know the drill, milk, bread, toilet paper. They then took the lists and went shopping. Ever since moving to Trenton 25 years ago, I noticed a true sense of being a neighbor; this is, I believe, a Trentonian strong point. We are a lucky to live in such a culture. Stay warm. Remember, "After winter follows green May." PHS
