Ouch! Those broken 100s hurt. The fly was very fast for me. Typically, my backstroke is faster in practice (faster underwaters on backstroke).

School was cancelled today. Maybe a 1/2 inch of snow this am, but now it's coming down pretty heavily. Glad I went to yoga last night, as I definitely won't be going anywhere tonight. I'm sure school will be cancelled again tomorrow. I'm just hoping I can get to the gym at some point in the afternoon when the main roads are plowed.

    Thx Chris. Not compared to what you get up to, but I was toast from the absolute AFAP nature.

    We did have a ton of snow last year. My kids didn't go to school for almost 2 weeks. It looks like we got 5-6, but other places close by got 10. I did sleep in this am. Wonderful stuff sleeping in.
