We survived the great ground blizzard of 2020 and wind chilliness of around -50. Today it gets warmer and is likely to hit double-digits above zero Fahrenheit which will soar into the 20s over the weekend. I can smell spring in the air!
This weekend will involve a careful read of NDQ 87.1/2 which goes to production on March 1. It’ll also involve the Daytona 500 and maybe a bit of college basketball. I can only hope my Mighty Spiders have better luck against their crosstown rivals VCU than the U.S. Men’s Cricket Team did again the the powerhouse Nepal.
Hope your weekend is productive, relaxing, and a full of excitement. Please enjoy this little gaggle of quick hits and varia:
