And then my friend, Andy Porter, of jolly old Brooklyn, sent me a message about photos of the snow in Devon, England. Devon is one of my favorite places in England and I know it pretty well from a dozen trips there. The website can be found by googling "BBC E-mail Snow Across Devon" I found the photos very interesting. The Exe River is frozen. I've hiked along the Exe. The shingle beaches are covered with snow. I hope the people weather it well. The photos seem to indicate that they are taking it in stride.
We've had our bit of snow here in Seattle a week ago. We don't deal with it very well and it brings the city and environs to a crawl. We hope that it is finished for the year.
