Paul is at home, and I am in Minot. We are both alive. Thanks to everyone who helped us out. Y'all have no idea how grateful I am.

I am about to walk for 1.5 miles through foot-tall or taller snow drifts, to a stranger's truck (at least Paul knows him,) in high-heeled platform boots through the fog, order to get out of Sawyer and into Minot. Paul will be ultimately hunkering down at his house until the plows come, but he will be helping me bring my stuff by sled.

The snow plows have still not made it through here, and we still can't get the hell out of here. There might be a possibility that if I walk a mile and a half to the highway and someone meets me there, I will be able to get out. Apparently, we are in Sawyer, right next to Spring Prairie, ND. I am going insane, if this keeps up, I'm not sure if I will be able to take the train home. I CANNOT be stuck here on my birthday, or worse, until Tuesday (when Sawyer schools get back in session.) If anyone can help, it would be incredible. Please call Paul 701-240-8395 if you can.

This is absolutely intriguing to me. When I was young, I remember that my mom and grandmother both told me about a Black President had been in power, long before I even knew about Barack Obama. More recently, an elderly African-American lady in Minneapolis had told me that I was silly to believe that Obama would be the first Black President. Warren G.

Vassie is pretty bummed right now. Paul and I are completely trapped here in Sawyer, ND. The roads are impassible. The school buses are not running, so the town has no immediate need to plow the roads. HWY 83 is open, but the county roads are still buried underneath giant snow drifts. To make matters worse, my phone does not work, so I have to use Paul's minutes. I am really hoping that I am not stuck here on my birthday, as that would really suck and I would probably have to forfeit my base pay due to breach of contract on my end. Everyday we remain t

I really hate hurricanes. I had hoped that I could escape those damn things when I left Puerto Rico. Unfortunately, they seem to follow me no matter where I go. There is a hurricane-like weather system with tendrils that reach from Canada to the Gulf of Mexico. It has rain, thunder, lightning and snow. Paul and I were stranded inside this scary blizzard from hell, in a rural road, for seven hours, in a vain attempt for me to work at the Chicago Club tonight. Eventually Paul's neighbors were able to rescue us. Thank heavens for winter survival kits, rai

It's the anniversary of the Russian Revolution, marking the Marxist overthrow of the Russian government. Karl Marx once wrote that "religion is the opium of the people." What is the new opium of the people?
