Snow on trees - beautiful, if you ask me, and appropriate weather for this time of year. Of course not everybody sees it that way. Most of the people supposedly always "Dreamin' of a white Christmas..." have been whinging non-stop since the snow started, admittedly a good bit ahead of the feast itself.
And then, yes, off we went. They're at it again. Newspapers, people on the (much delayed) train, friends on the telephone... the same old story... "so much for climate change. Do you know how much snow is on my doorstep...?" I wish they would read the Ice Blog and not have such short memories some times.

But: "The cold has reason in a deathly grip" - does that not sound a bit drastic George?
