In one of our nation’s strange bursts of regional anger, there was bumper sticker some years back directed at the northern states. It went something like “Let them freeze in the dark.” I think I may have left out an epithet.

I’m not sure DC counts as the north, but in any case that’s what I’ll likely be doing shortly. Transportation is shutting down around here, and power likely to do so soon. I’ll be back when I’m back.

UPDATE. I’m back.
