Am plagued by great sadness as my Washington Capitals saw the Franchise Record 14-game win streak come to an end with a 6-5 (OT) Loss to the Montreal Canadiens. Was bound to happen, but still sad.

Also, have completed yet more snow clearance. Yesterday's storm brought about 8 more inches, not itself too bad - but the high winds blew all the snow off the Row Houses across the street and deposited enormous snow drifts on my property. After much work, I'm dug out again. Also knocked a bunch of those deadly looking icicles off my roof - though sadly, the winds left my snow up there still.

In other news, in a fit of nostalgia... my neighbor from childhood was visiting his parents with his daughter - and built a slide on our lawn... as we once did as children, oh so many years ago. My parents took pictures out the window. It's nice to see (by proxy) another generation of children hurtling down those old slopes.
