February 2011 brought a big snow fall to Chicago, and I, and everyone I knew had a "snow day" in the old school sense, whether we wanted one or not.Today, my colleagues and friends on the East Coast in NYC (and beyond) are in a similar situation. Stocked up on canned goods and water, waiting it out, and hoping for the best. Consider this post my way of sending good thoughts and best wishes to everyone who is at home today thanks to Sandy. Here are some good old links from my snow storm post back in '11, along with plenty of fresh, new ones. Hopefully you find something inspiring here to help pass the time until things are dry enough to head out.
