Kirk M - For some reason I seem to be dreaming a lot about the Seychelles lately.  We don't have holiday homes around here, so I'll just have to fall back on the old reliable bank.  [and you were in Spam, BTW ;) ]

TT - Are you sure you don't live in Ireland?  All that sounds very like Ireland to me.

Liv - I don't know about Herself.  She hasn't thawed out enough to tell me what happened, yet.  As for swimming in ice - take my tip and kepp off the top diving board.  It's a bugger.

@tt - I believe it. I remember when I was stationed in Norfolk, VA in the early 80's. There was one very bad winter (snow storms leaving 6 to 8 inches, ice storms...all that good stuff) where the entire shore was shut down for days at a time. People just got out of their cars and left them on the highways in whatever lane they stood. 3 inches of snow on the road and there were semis laying on their sides along the highway. Sometimes in the highway itself. Unbelievable to a northern boy like me. I became a hero simply for being able to drive any car my shipmates gave me into town for beer and cigarette runs. Even the cops couldn't catch me (roads were officialy closed you know).Ah, the good times...

I'm glad to hear herself got in! I hope she didn't track too much straw inside the house. Sounds like she had a good time - there are few things more comforting than the soothing wheeze of a cow's breath.Didn't see any of your fires yesterday. Nor have I seen any swans on the Canal. Poor things can't swim in ice, I guess. Neither can I; must stop trying. Brr.

We are expecting, with city wide fear and trepidation, up to one half inch of snow this evening here in Atlanta. Needless to say all the schools are shutting down this afternoon and the stores are rapidly running out of bread, water,kerosene, toilet rolls etc. At least it will be quiet at the movies and in the pub tonight.

Grandad - I messed up the email address and my comment went into moderation/spam. If you'd be so kind to dig it out when you have a chance I'd much appreciate it.

@King's Bard - Ah well, you know mothers. You're not still bothered by this are you?@Grandad - Used to it? Thing is that I'm tired of being used to it! Seems like the older I get the more susceptible to cold I become and yet the farther north I move. There's something very, very wrong here. I don't want to move to Miami per say but Hawaii is looking very nice right about now. Time to raid some of those summer homes up on the mountain that overlook the lake I believe. Should be enough ready cash hidden in those places to set me up on a nice, warm beach for a good while.
