I need to get a lot of work done, so the fact that it is gray and icky outside is useful from my perspective.
This year, the group we go to for Passover is occupying the Stamford Plaza Hotel. This means being fairly close to NYC for Chol Hamoed. Who is around and has some time to hang out? For those in the area but not in synch with the Jewish calendar, the dates are April 9-12.
Alas, I still have a ton of work to do. But it looks like it is clearing up.
