    Judge Comment: With the addition of blizzard statistics, I was pulled into the column as we do not have that type of weather where I live. We do have humidity, so that does help to keep the nosebleeds at bay. More and more, I've found so many connections in my life and by seeing you meet one of the girls, whose story you knew, really shows are world is small!

    Judge Comment: Not a good story...I hope your spotlight Mr. Raatz knows he had a good story and you portrayed that story quite well. I have a complete aversion to opossums. They are the worst, yet I continued to read on to see what you actually did with the gross guy. That should tell you everything you need! I truly hope your Lucille Ball continues to be herself!
