Snow is still coming down steadily and I am following reports of school districts closing via posts on Facebook. Watching the Green Bay Packers and San Francisco play football was unbelievable—5 degrees with a wind chill factor of -10. In a few minutes I'll be watching Downton Abbey, but tomorrow it will be back to the books. Let's see, what to I have? When we were up north I borrowed a book from our friend Steve. I started it one morning because it looked interesting, and I brought it back to finish (but forgot I had it.) It is Surface at the Pole, the extraordinary voyages of the USS Skate. What is extraordinary is that Steve's brother was one of the sailors aboard the submarine as it journeyed under the Polar Ice. Then last week my son-in-law lent me The Lost Men, the harrowing saga of Shackleton's Ross Sea party. See a theme here? Perhaps a trip to the small theatre at the end of the street? Guess what's playing—Frozen.
We will see what tomorrow brings. And never underestimate the worth of a gracious and generous neighbor with a snowblower.
