If this is about http://www.wwfry.org/pics/Christmas2010.pdf, it works fine in Firefox 3.6.12

I am also using Firefox 3.6.12, and it appears to work fine, as the "olidays" has now disappeared. However, if I open it with Explorer 8, I see an additional line:

Come join the W.W.&F. Railway as we celebrate the Holidays.

-just below the words Victorian Christmas.

Interesting ;D

I'm planning to come up from CT. I plan to leave QUITE early, as the last few times I haven't made it up before dusk.  ;)

Pete, plan on a good 4 hour drive in good driving conditions from western Mass. You didn't mention where in CT you will be coming from but it's a 4 hour drive from the intersection of routes 90 & 91 in MA. If the weather is poor plan on a longer drive. I plan to leave around 5 - 6 AM on the 18th to make it there before 11 AM.

My hour and a half ride is nothing compared to what you guys are doing. My only benefit is I can go more often. ;D

How's the snow situation at the Museum? Can we expect a suitably scenic Victorian Christmas?

Currently snow is non-existent.  We may get a couple of inches by the end of the week, depending on if the December Hurricane that just blew through retrogrades back into Maine.

Calling for snow on Wednesday. Hopefuly a couple of inches to cover the ground and provide some festive scenery. Cold (20's and 30's) through the weekend.

As James noted, the 5" of snow melted last week when the temps got to 55 and it rained.  The good news ... it is snowing in Alna.  The weather service is calling for 1 - 2" of broom snow.  As Mike noted, daytime temps will be in the upper 20s to low 30s for the next couple of days.  Overnight temps will be in the teens so the snow should stay around.  The forecast for Saturday is mostly sunny with temps in the low to mid 30s.
