As we write this, DC Public Schools has declared today a snow day. The DC and federal governments seem likely to follow suit.
Whether you get a snow day – or still have to trudge through the weather to work – we thought you’d enjoy these recent blog posts by Bread Furst founder Mark Furstenberg. He writes periodically on the subject of food, running his small business and whatever’s been on his mind.
In late February’s “The Weathermen,” Furstenberg writes about forecasters, the accuracy (or inaccuracy) of their forecasts, and how we’re conditioned to prepare for the worst despite the conditions:
A few weeks ago on January 30th they had direly predicted a horrible morning of ice and snow; and schools were scheduled to open late. In fact a gloomy early morning turned into bright sunshine by 10 am. There was no snow and the streets were dry. Some parents, in the bakery with their children, weren’t happy but I was.
His latest blog post seems a good way to use the time if stuck indoors with a kitchen handy. It’s about “The Joy of Cooking.”
And if the weather forecasters are right and we’re in for 6 to 12 inches of snow, let’s just hope everyone can get out safely and support Bread Furst and other local businesses – provided they can safely open for business.
