Could people have been at Stitches WEST over the weekend? It ran from Thursday, Feb 23, through Sunday, Feb 26, in Santa Clara, California.

That's possible DCM. It probably wouldn't account for this much quiet, but I wouldn't be surprised if a few went.

Well, the big snow storm here in my area was a bust. Light rain and snow mix, some slush, but nothing to write home to mother about. Northern Wisconsin got slammed. Crandon, Wisconsin got the worst of it with 23 inches of snow!

I think your storm being a bust is good news? We had a little snow here and it's still white out. I am ready for spring.

With winter being so strange and mild, who knows what's going to happen next? Last year we had a tornado one week and a blizzard the next IN APRIL.

I think it was 2 yrs. ago we had a tornado in my area. They are rare in the Pacific Northwest and I'd never been so close to one before. I was in my car in a parking lot and later realized the wind that was so so strong was probably the result of the tornado. It touched down a few miles away. Three or four years ago we had snow around April 20. Right now I feel like I'm going to freeze to death from global warming! I'm not accustomed to "real" winters with lots of snow and freezing weather being the norm.

Sorry for the late reply, it was a busy week. I work in an HIV vaccine research lab! My group does genetic analysis of the HIV genome to study how the virus changes over the course of infection, which gives us an idea of what areas we should try to target with a vaccine.

If anyone is familiar with the study results that were released in 2009 showing the FIRST vaccine to be effective, we were involved in that!

I had to work today. The store started out busy with everybody gearing up for a big snow storm,6-8 inches. When the snow started,everybody went home. Not too many people there and it was boring. If they allowed it, I should have brought my knitting. We're getting slammed with heavy snow right now. I'm safe and dry at home. Thinking strongly about that Swiss Miss hot chocolate stash up in the cabinet.
