Shoveling day

Friends and relatives in the mid-Atlantic are spending this week shoveling loads of snow. I've been shoveling, too, if not snow. It's time to deal with projects of various sorts, and I can't complain too much about them: recruiting people for certain tasks; responding to a bureaucratic emergency or three; getting various bills paid; talking with colleagues about potential projects; editing a batch of EPAA titles and abstracts for articles I accepted in late December so they can be translated into Spanish and Portuguese; and so forth. I should get a few more tasks done in the next hour before I head out to Afternoon Drive-Time.

May your shoveling day be productive, no matter what you're shoveling.
