Snow Storm Soup

This weekend in Central New York, winter has {finally} arrived.  While it wasn’t the huge crazy snow storm that everyone was prepared for, we did get dumped on pretty good, and got about foot of snow outside.  With the wind and freezing temperatures, most local businesses have shut down for the day and activities have been […]

Soupy Sunday

February  in Central New York is typically cold and snowy, and it’s about this time that cabin fever starts to set in.  This winter has been so strange, and yesterday was actually almost 60 degrees and sunny.  The kind of weather that makes you want to be PRODUCTIVE, and I was told by my boss […]
