Choir! Choir! Choir! This bears more investigation – but a moving tribute in any case.
Sent a quick hello to Matt Glenndining at Moses Brown School to find out how hard the latest big snow blast in the east was affecting them. Matt said they had only 4 or 5 inches of snow through Saturday so most of the damage seems to have missed them to the south. At any […]
