Out of the Blue

Well, we got socked with that snowstorm they predicted, not sure we got the full foot of snowfall they called for, but it's pretty deep out there. I'll have to tackle that in a bit, but with the temperature right around 2°F and a "real feel" of -29°F I'm not in any rush to head out there. Yeesh.

It is quite sad. But why didn't any of those 6 adults stop that kid from going back into the fire.
Take your pick, they were drunk, stoned, or coughing their lungs out from smoke inhalation. But yeah, you're right -- if the 8 year was still functional, you'd hope at least one of the adults was and would have stopped him. We'll probably never really know...
