Hi Beth,
Here in the Whites everyone is cheerful because we are having a snow covered winter. It means you can get outside and ski. But today is grey, 33 degrees and raining. It has been a warmer winter than in the past, but still, snowy and lovely.

You know the cold has a way of focusing the attention on those everday things. The cold has been biting here in Iowa, too.

Cold as charity here, but mucky, undecided skies, a busy wind & occasional tentative flurries of sleet that just won't commit. Much more of this piss & wind & I'll be on my way north for some real, fat 3D snow!

Who was Cassandra?

  • In the Iliad, she is described as the loveliest of the daughters of Priam (King of Troy), and gifted with prophecy. The god Apollo loved her, but she spurned him. As a punishment, he decreed that no one would ever believe her. So when she told her fellow Trojans that the Greeks were hiding inside the wooden horse...well, you know what happened.
