According to Wikipedia, a person born on February 29th can be referred to as a "leapling" or a "leaper". "Leapling" sounds way cooler of the two choices, so I wish all those leaplings out there a Happy Birthday, as I did four years ago today (http://hrdfax.blogspot.com/2008/02/happy-birthday-leap-people.html ) and will again four years from now.
It's been a mostly snow-less winter here in the Twin Cities, so a couple days ago everybody was kind of excited to have a big snowstorm ("maybe 18 inches!") predicted for yesterday and today. It turned out to be one of those enormous snowstorms that never happens. We got a lot of rain, then a freezing rain/snow mixture, all of which added up to practically no snow accumulation and a lot of wet, icy, messy roads and sidewalks, car crashes and power outages. A real snowstorm would have been a lot more fun.
