    Something else to think about - mom wouldn't want her son and future king to grow up a sniveling slave. So... his mentors have to make sure he is fit to be a ruler.

    If you are there Friday and Saturday, you might get away with rain. Sunday - snow.

    Oh, god. I definitely do not want to get snowed in! For a whole host of reasons...

    I need to find some mittens, or at least gloves made of something other than thin cloth, I guess.

    Oh, do you know what the venue is? If it's crest hollow or the watermill, can you let me know how the place is?

    Looking for a wedding venue yourself?

    The wedding itself is (checks invitation) at a catholic church in Seaford, and the reception is at Jericho Terrace in Mineola.

    I have no idea what any of that means, but you might!

    It takes a significant storm to get snowed in around there.

    I was, we actually decided on one. We were considering Jericho Terrace, but I'm getting married at Crest Hollow, and one of my best friends is still looking. Let me know how it is, and I'll relay the info, if you don't mind

    Going to second that you don't have to worry about being snowed in. Definitely be careful if you're driving though, and get a beanie or wool cap...those are life-savers.

    Not if you're used to driving in AZ weather... People who are not used to snow can get snowed in really really easy.

    Rest assured I won't be doing any driving, regardless of the road conditions. That's why the universe created trains and Lyft. I do have wool beanies!

    It's amazing how a decade of living out here has made me a complete weenie about the cold, which I never used to mind.

    Sure, no problem!

    Would everyone in NY state please open their doors and turn up the heat? I have to go up there in a few weeks, and I'd appreciate it if you could get it to some reasonable temperature for me.

    Thanks.

    I feel the same way, except I'm leaving in four days! Assuming those temps aren't in Celsius, I'm... concerned. Eep.

    There is a warmup coming next week highs in the 40s in Long Island, likely much colder at night

    At least it's a stranger who is probably used to driving that area in the winter.

    I don't see so many of those up north. They're far more common down here, where I learned to drive.

    It's a very specific skill learning how to drive in the snow, just like city driving. If one of my friends/family comes up here when it's snowing, and they don't live where it snows, we are driving them around until the snow goes away or they leave.

    (Most) drivers who live up here have learned that skill, and I would hope any Uber or Lyft driver driving in the snow also knows how.
