It’s mid-morning here at shawnblanc.net HQ (a.k.a. my house) and outside we’ve already got 8-10 inches of snowfall. And it’s still coming down.
The Internet has been down since at least 5:00 am, (I’m posting this via my iPad’s LTE hotspot), and it may be only a matter of time until we lose power as well (though I hope not). Unfortunately, many in the city are already without power — the snow is so thick and wet that tree branches are snapping and ripping down power lines.
Now, by no means am I trying to paint this as a dire situation. Quite the contrary. We’ve got plenty of hot drinks, snacks, popcorn, and [ripped DVDs](https://shawnblanc.net/2013/02/setting-up-a-basic-mac-media-server/).
As president of shawnblanc.net I’m declaring it a snow day. Regular posting will resume tomorrow.
In the meantime, I’d like to take this opportunity to remind you that the [2013 Membership Drive and Giveaway](https://shawnblanc.net/2013/02/the-membership-giveaway/) ends this Friday at midnight. There are over $3,000 in prizes. And, for new and current members, today would make an excellent day for perusing past episodes of *[Shawn Today](https://shawnblanc.net/members/shawntoday/)* while trying a new [coffee recipe](https://shawnblanc.net/members/coffeemethods/).
