Slushy Sniffed Links

What a mess. The mid-atlantic continues to dig itself out of this snowy (now mushy) mess. I was reminded this week how differently people can view almost any situation. Roads that I considered a complete disaster on Monday and Tuesday were described by others as “not too bad” or “in pretty good shape”. I have always been someone who questions everything. It got me in trouble in school but has kept me out of trouble as an adult and business owner. I don’t want to know what you thought of the roads. I want to know what the roads were like…literally. Lanes closed? Snow on the ramps? Wet? Dry? I need specifics. 

Some people just want to know if the market was up or down. Me? I want to know how much up or down. The day to day swings don’t mean much but the depth or heights of those swings tell us a lot about the current state of confidence and volatility. Below are three GREAT reads....and they aren't too long.
