Thursday, March 13, 2014, I had a meeting at a local elected official's office. We didn't meet with him, but with a member of his staff. It was a productive meeting, I think. It was short. My roommate said upon my return: "All that preparation and you were gone less than an hour?"
It was cold that day. Spring finally seems to have come to the Big Apple as of Thursday (arriving right on time!), but more cold weather is predicted for Monday.
