December, Professor Guy Erwin - California University - "Sex, Marriage, Men and Women"

This was one of the few times LSM had to be canceled on Saturday, because of an overnight snow storm. Dr. Erwin was supposed to fly home Saturday afternoon. He is shown below on Saturday evening - drive way cleared, but no snow plows yet. Neighbors got him to the airport on Sunday thanks to 4 wheel drive, but no flights were going into O'Hare except international flights inbound.  We got the snow blowers out to make a path to go get him back from the Chippewa Valley Regional airport.  Guy made it home finally later on Monday.
