Well, I'll come back on the 31st if it dodges the snow. Up north, they are saying christmas will be dodgey, which kind of defeats the purpose of the whole drive up so I can take dad to brother's house idea.
One christmas we did the whole raid on entebbe / abottabad routine with a morning quick hit in NH then a turn around as soon as we saw the first snow flake. This was back when I lived up there. I hate driving in snow.
