: : That about covers it. Oh, you want 6 degrees do you? Fine.

: : There. Happy?
: Dear Bill,
: Hey, if I can adjust, so can you. After all those years in Virginia and Texas, I am back in the northland, learning to drive in THAT STUFF again. As to the 6 degrees, you're in good shape. Snow time is HUNTING time for the Longhunters! Although LOTM took place in July, but Hawkeye spent a fair amount of his time slogging through the snow in Cooper's novels. "The Pioneers" was almost all in December and starts with Hawkeye (called The Leatherstocking, by that time), pursuing a deer through the snow. It's a wonderful scene.
: Happy Sledding!
You oh so succinctly summed up my feelings about the powdery white stuff,which is one reason why I fled New York as fast as I could after college ended. You won't hear "I'm dreaming of a white Christmas" bein' hummed in THIS house. At least I've got my happy little gas-guzzlin' Jeep 4x4 to get me through any I might encounter this year...although I might reconsider my feelings about snow should I see Hawkeye dashin' through it...buckskin and bear rugs in front of a roarin' fire, anyone?
Happy as a clam below the Mason Dixon line,
