A Journey Back to See Where We Started

As we are all digging out of the latest storm, some of us heading to work, some dressing kids to get out of the house for a few hours (hopefully) and some just sipping coffee watching the plow undo all the work we just did, we thought it would be fun to share with you...

You Can’t Run from the Facts
