snow snow snow
as the days
grow longer

I know this feeling well - perhaps not as well as you do with all the snow you've been getting in the northeast. You remain my mentor, Bill - wonderful poetry.

... and wind driven snow, glues itself to the flag pole, but the longer days...

Something to look forward to Bill, good one!_m

I've been thinking of you these past few days with all the snow you've been getting.
We no longer maintain bragging rights-perhaps a rematch next year.

It seems that all the snow we usually get here in Montreal is falling on you, guys... But, as this nice haiku points out, there is some hope... !

We were without power just as I was about to cook dinner. Had a cold meal and managed to boil water on my fondue burner to make instant coffee. Sort of fun to do, but not too often.

Thank you,my friends. We're pretty well dug out now, with some possibility of more to come by the first of next week.

Warren, you've long passed the point of needing a mentor; I've certainly learned from you. But I appreciate the thought.

Doug and Monika, I'm glad you picked up the note of hope in this.

Willie, I'll be rooting for you guys.

Vaughn, we had plenty to spare. I'm reading about the herculean efforts to import snow to Vancouver for the Winter Olympics.

Devika, John, much appreciated.

Adelaide, I took the liberty of deleting one of your postings, since they seemed essentially to duplicate each other. True, the one I kept doesn't stress the romantic as much as the other one did.

I take it as a sign of how intelligent, sophisticated, and civilized my friends are that no one has made a joke about global warming.

All I can say is...that's very sporting of you, Bill.

Thanks for that. It's been a pretty bleak winter!

Canadu, I hear rumors of crocus sightings on Vancouver Island.
