Editor's Note: Presumably, baby Willard kept everyone up nearly all night.  Weaning is a tough work on everyone. 

Allen is sleighing already in 1898.  I can't help but wonder where my snow is this year?  I'm used to having the first Snow Day off from school around this week and there's nothing, nada, nil on the ground but matted, faded, grass.
