Hello Family,
This is going out to Alex in SLC: did you hear the power just come back on? I guess we're
just deprived of sun and warmth back here in N.E., I havn't got my "need it bad" fix yet down
south, but we're leaving next week to get some sun & fun in hopefully warmer Florida.

It really hasn't been a bad winter here in N.E., but there's still February to deal with and the
cold is coming back this weekend. We were in Stowe, Vt. last week and I was surprised how little
snow they have had thus far, but there was enough to snowshoe and I got a good workout on my
new hip and the new parts seem to work just fine.

It sounds like you had a great trip to Hawaii, but yes, it is always good to get back home. I was a
bit confused with the dates and times of your other blogs, but now I understand (I think).

I too am hoping that more family members will respond to this blog, but then again, maybe they
havn't got their power back on yet...

Later, Cousin Paul

No Electricity In the NE

There must be no electricity in the Northeast. I guess everyone is so overwhelmed with the weather that communicating is difficult. Maybe my subtle reference to the mild temps and unending sun and surf in Hawaii ruffled some feathers, sorry.

We are now back in SLC and firmly entrenched in the smog and cold. The good news is the ski resorts got 5 feet (yes 60 inches) of snow over the past week.

My tan is fading and I am slowly getting back into my PVSS (post vacation stress syndrome) routine. I have almost forgotten what it was like not to wear socks for several days in a row.

For those of you who are astute observers of both this blog and my "World According to Pedro" blog you have noted the incongruency with respect to the Hawaiian vacation. I say we are back yet the posts on WATP continue about Hawaii. How can this be?

Through the magic of electronic communication and some help from by brother Steve I learned how to write a post and set it to publish at a later date. That way I could live the vacation twice, once in real time and again when it posted. Pretty clever huh?

I hope you all can get your power back on and your hands unfrozen to let us know how things are in the right side of the country. Have fun.

How Is Everyone?

Hi All,

Haven't heard anything from this group since the New Year. How is everyone?

Marijke Maddy and I are getting back into our post Festivus routine. We are doing our annual vacation in a sunnier and warmer climate. We will be back in SLC tomorrow. All is well here; brown, warm and without socks. We can't wait to get back to winter.

Here is a picture of our view this morning. I hope your's is as good.

Happy New Year!

It's hard to believe we're already into a new decade, but that's life, just keeps moving on...
Here's wishing The Rossi Family great health and happiness in this new year and let's stay
away from the funeral homes!
Hope we can get a reunion together this summer to have some fun and to meet our newest
family member, Mason Rossi Campion.
Stay warm, stay well, and stay happy!

Love, Cousin Paul

Happy New Year!
