I was planning to go. I wanted to go. I really really really wanted to go. I wanted to buy the books! I wanted to have my books signed! And... think of the great photo ops!
Darn snow! Darn ice! Darn slippery sidewalks and subway steps. Darn, darn, darn!
OK... so it wasn't like the blizzard of 1947, but that was the year I was born! It is one thing to look at snow through tired eyes and quite another thing to walk in snow and fall and break a hip!
