Out of the Blue

We're bracing for a nor'easter in these parts that the forecasters are predicting will be pretty nasty. This may stretch 1000 miles, all the way from the Carolinas to New England. Some areas are expected to get as much as a couple of feet of snow, and it's possible New York City will get more snow in one day than it received all last winter. High winds are expected in this area, so the power company is warning that this may result in some electrical lines going down, so there's the possibility we'll end up blacked out along the way. But while weather forecasting has become far more accurate over the years, there are still a lot of variables involved, so we'll just have to wait and see how things work out when it hits this afternoon. Hopefully it will all work out well, but I'll try and post a warning if we do end up losing power. If you are in the path, please stay safe.

I said what she did "is nice" and that "She deserves credit for the donation". But yes, I did minimize it -- because based on her estimated $60b net worth giving away $4.2b is less than you giving away 15% of your earnings. It is helpful, it is good, but for her it is not a sacrifice. It didn't reduce any of her options, as I'm sure your 15% donation did. I'm glad she is being charitable, but don't give her more credit than she deserves.
