    We got about 5-6″ overnight (Wilmington city) then some frozen sleet on top. I guess south of the canal was spared is what you’re saying?

    We didn’t get the predicted 8″ overnight. And since the temps are up we probably won’t get the additional 1-3″ today. But it’s significantly nasty up here.

  4. Bad up here in Brandywine Hundred. Sleet has changed to freezing rain over about 2-3 inches of snow. Very heavy to shovel. Only a matter of time before there are power outages and tree limbs down.

    Careny’s post in the news journal about his “support” for WEIC is something…. he’s claiming to take this on in years to come, but he is backing down from per student funding for low income and ELL. He seems to be going in on “innovation grants” which have mixed results at best.

    Also it seems as if dropout rates will be the education topic of the season. But with little to no hope of money going towards a solution it’s doubtful that they will have an impact on the problem.

    I’m so excited that the top 0.1% is getting a big tax cut. I’m sure after the poor pay for the tax cut, the wealthy people are all going to create good paying jobs and we will all be ok. I bet older retired people making 20K will be proud to contribute more for their own insurance..

    Last night’s “kidnapping” has been deemed a false report by the Newark PD.

    It’s always interesting to read headlines across the country.

    Cenk Uygur from The Young Turks and other younger heads talking about the way it is with establishment Democrats. It’s worth listening to the entire piece. I take some comfort in believing the younger heads are paying attention.
