Oh, to be in England

As electronic miracles continue to multiply, I often remember what our old friend Henry David Thoreau said about the telegraph line that had been strung over half the country—
“They tell us that Maine can now communicate with Texas.  But what does Maine have to say to Texas?”
It seems wrong, somehow, to use this incredible medium just to tell you that it’s snowing here.  But I will anyhow:
When I woke up on April Fools’ Day it was snowing.
Yesterday my car blundered into a white-out at noon.
                        Right now it’s snowing.

Oh, to be in England, now that April’s there!

  1. I can only assume you have not seen the English weather reports this year. March was one of the coldest on record, and so far April is no better.
