Illustration Friday "grounded"

Due to the snowstorm, all flights have been grounded.

Hope everyone has had a pleasant first week of the New Year! We are still enjoying a snow-less winter so far. The temps have been relatively mild, and I was able to go out for a nice long walk early this morning with one of my friends. We decided we'd prefer the bare pavements, even if it meant no cross-country skiing or snowshoeing for a while. Weather conditions can change very quickly here in New England, so it probably won't be long before it looks more typical for January.

  6. What a great use of the grounded prompt. I didn't think of flights let alone bird flights, but he seems very comfortable with the situation.
