NAB LUNCH GATHERING
Yes, as usual we invite you to set Tuesday Noon aside, as many have for 22 years, to gather together and have lunch, a chat, and some surprises. This year, Cary Tepper brings his Ask the Lawyer service to our Lunch Gathering.  And he's invited technical consultant Laura Mizrahi to join him for Ask the Tech Consultant. 

We have rented the back room at the Westgate LV Resort Buffet.  Oh, and did I mention the door prizes? Everyone is a winner at our Lunch Gathering!

YES, IT WAS COLD AND SNOWY ... SOMEWHERE
NOAA posted its seasonal snow tallies. No, this year was not topped by Alaska, anywhere.
The top spot appears to be: Worcester MA, (sort of mid-MA) got 115.6 inches of very difficult.
Over in Boston, they came up with 108.6 inches of street clogging white stuff!
And in Alaska?  Just 20.7 inches this season.
Wow.
