Blizzards and Holiday Parties Really Do Mix!

The Blizzard of 12-16-07 fell on the heels of the annual McVay Media Holiday Party. Thus, several McVay Media consultants and associates were stranded in Cleveland. McVay Media News/Talk Specialist Holland Cooke and Heather Cohen (The Weiss Agency) along with Heather's husband (Michael Waxman) joined Mike & Doris McVay for a pajama party and blizzard sleep-over.

The Blizzard pajama party combined work and frivolity, much like marshmallows and hot chocolate.

Holland worked on client reports...

...while Michael took the opportunity to grade papers.

Friends grew closer...

...sometimes even too close.

The Christmas lights on the trees grew dark during the blizzard...

but Holland remained steadfast in his determination to publish, publish, publish!
