I live about halfway between the dots for Raleigh and Durham, which means on this weather warning map, I'm officially brown. My workplace is pink. Brown is a winter weather advisory; pink is a warning. In other words, I'm staying home so that good Yankees like Jimmy Beck won't have to worry with my horrible winter weather driving skills. Besides, my car, which endured about three-hundred miles of pre-deiced roads, needs a break. Stay tuned later this morning for the official kickoff of the SoTShoStoWriMo.
