Snow philosophy

Much snow over Britain today and yesterday. It keeps snowing here but never lies on the ground, much to my children's dismay. Yesterday's times featured in its "picture of the day" slot a lovely shot of Flamborough Head lighthouse in East Yorkshire. The accompanying quotation is from A. A. Milne: "It's snowing still," said Eeyore gloomily. "So it is." "And freezing." "Is it?" "Yes," said Eeyore. "However," he said brightening up a little, "we haven't had an earthquake lately."
