rain or snow

"Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds."
James Farley Post Office in New York City

I'm waiting with high anticipation for the 1 to 3 inches of snow that promised me this afternoon. In the meantime, I'm sitting in front of the fire with Oswald next to me and my fuzzy sweater on. Oh, and my furry slippers as well. Right now, there's a consistently cold drizzle, but I have faith in my snow hat. I wore my snow hat yesterday, and it will bring on the snow, just like it did last year! Besides, I'm all for early birthday presents.

In the meantime, I have another package to get ready for my poor frozen husband. This one will include yet another set of flannel sheets. I'd rather get him back with all fingers and toes attached. Frost bite and I are not friends.


  1. I hope you get your snow. And could you maybe send some down our way?

  2. Um, the quote is from Herodotus and the couriers were working for the Persian king, Xerxes. They were the ones who relayed the message in Esther regarding the fate of the Jews.

    I love that kind of weather!
