Starting the snowplows...

Our donations have dropped off dramatically during this season of giving, $30 in the last 10 days, not even enough to cover the cost of gasoline for two days. Even though Boeing activity will be slow next week due to the holidays I would like to spend a few days at the airport, a fuel subsidy will certainly help.
