The North East portion of the US had bigger problems than working a 
satellite today.  Those that were not at work, were busy taking care of 
their property.  We were enjoying a significant snowfall which was followed 
by what our forecasters call a Wintry Mix which consists of  more snow, 
freezing rain and rain.
It is a delightful game trying to figure out when and how often to clean up 
hoping that you do not end up with a sheet of ice on your driveway and 
walks.  If you wait too long you have the fun of removing several inches of 
soaking wet snow which is a bit heavy.

We must speak to the chaps that control AO-51 and ask them not to let this 
happen again.
