Forget the snow for a moment or two
A major storm is supposed to level us this afternoon, so in the interest of staying calm, I suggest a visit to the warm, green forests of Barro Colorado. No, this spot isn't actually in Colorado. Barro Colorado is the largest forested island in the Panama Canal waterway, and is part of Barro Colorado Nature Monument where there is a renowned biological research station.
Here's what you do: Get the snow shovel out and locate your warmest gloves. then sit down by your computer, take a deep breath and say "ahh."
