Winter Weather

13 February 2014

Since those summer dreams really will have to wait, here is a picture from Virginia during the snows. We've had a solid twelve hours of this overwhelming weather and it's looking like we have another twelve hours to go. We've already got roughly a foot of snow. It certainly is winter here and it's beautiful in it's own way.

Now winter nights enlarge
This number of their hours;
And clouds their storms discharge
Upon the airy towers
Let now the chimneys blaze
And cups o'erflow with wine,
Let well-tuned words amaze
With harmony divine
Now yellow waxen lights
Shall wait on honey love
While youthful revels, masques, and courtly sights
Sleep's leaden spells remove
-Thomas Campion
