Top Ten Twitter Tweets of February 15, 2020

Good Authoring Day to YOU 

The snow was a burden for many in my neck of the woods over the last week. I figured I moved over 18 inches of the white stuff from last Thursday through Sunday.

And, I took a tumble with the nasty black ice hiding under a beautiful 5-inch powder layer. The result was a concussion that I’m now growing through and out of… doing work but scaling back a tad for healing this week. Only canceling a few face-to-face appointments, my offices declared a “snow week” so I could spend quiet and sleeping times—plus working with doctors.
