Twister Comes To New York: Tornado Watch in Rockland

I turn around and look outside the window and everything is dark, like it is night time. The trees are blowing, like I have never seen them blow. The rain, lightening and thunder is coming down like I can not remember. Bam! The electricity goes out for a second. Backup worked, server is fine. But

Missed Tuesday Basketball Three Weeks in a Row!

I don’t think I have ever missed Tuesday basketball three times in a row. At most, maybe two weeks, but not even when I went on my honeymoon. The first two weeks, I ended up stuck with work until well after 10pm each day. But last night I missed for two reasons. (1) My wife

It’s Cold!

I walk outside this morning about 6am and I get in my car, turn it on and bam – it read 6 degrees Fahrenheit. As I drove to work, a bit later, it dropped down to 5 degrees. Brrrr. Right now at 10 AM (EST) it is 10 degrees: But honestly, I cannot complain, it
