Live, right this moment, from our corner of Yankeeland. That's one of the dwindling woodpiles. The lousy camera doesn't pick it up, but it's snowing heavily and accumulating rapidly.
Schools closed because the amateur bus drivers can't handle 7" of fresh snow: they don't use chains anymore (on the tires, not on the kids - we still use chains up here on the kids, when appropriate). Avoiding litigation, no doubt.
To readers who don't get this white stuff where you live: eat your hearts out! It is a beautiful thing. Now it's time to add a log or two to the fire and worsen global warming or cooling or malaria or whatever.
