We got a nice big snowstorm
December 19 - 20 to usher in winter. We got about 18
inches over about 36 hours. But, people in the Rochester
region know how to deal with it, so apart from some messy
traffic on Friday, we now just have piles of snow around.
For more details, see the
Winter 2008 - 09 page.
Poor Tabby got dumped in the snowbank, and had
to forge her way back into the house.
Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps (AFROTC)
Steve is in his third year of
studies in Electrical Engineering at Clarkson University in
Potsdam, New York.
Steve is on a full scholarship at
Clarkson through the Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps (AFROTC).
In July Steve attended Air Force ROTC Summer
Training is at Maxwell
Air Force Base in Montgomery, Alabama.
Now, doesn't July in Alabama
sound like for the guy who chose to go to school in Potsdam, NY
because the temperature in Potsdam stays below freezing for most
of the winter?
After graduation from
Clarkson, he expects to be commissioned as a
Second Lieutenant in the Air Force, and serve at least four years
of active duty.
Steve also enjoys keeping our
elderly Subaru Outback wagon going amidst the cold and ice of
Potsdam. He is having to pick up his car know-how on his
own, since Dad David has none.
Steve and David did get to
participate together in a BMW Car Club Ultimate Driving School at
the world-famous Watkins Glen International race
track. We were assigned to different driver groups, so that
we could both use the MINI Cooper S (see Steve's
Page and David's Page).
