Troop 807 held its regularly scheduled Friday nite camp (as an LDS troop,
it doesn't camp over Saturday nite). Predicted 12-18". Actual snowfall:
8". First snowfall of the season in the Washington, D.C. area.
Several parents fretfull/angry that we camped as scheduled. Promised I'd
call the SM's wife via ham radio on Saturday AM to assure her all survived
the night. (People get VERY paranoid here when snow is predicted:
grocery stores were mobbed Friday nite. No bread or milk remained.)
My colleagues at work figured this was just another evidence that I'm out
of touch with reality. :-)
Boys had a great time (of course). Lots of sledding. Everyone came home
on schedule with all fingers and toes.

Byos love it when they can "push the envelope" and do something in scouts
that their friends can only dream of. We need to give them that opportunity.
