Memories, sounds of the ocean, sand in your toes and the opportunity to reflect. That’s what a $2 bill can do.

Although it was only a few days ago, the remnants on Snow on October 30th have left an impression for many. It’s hard to recall a time when we’ve had snow on the ground before Thanksgiving much less before Mid December.
