March 6, 2011 Blizzard in New York
  1. "Snow Falling on Cedars" because it's the perfect image
  2. anticipatory spring fever ~ crocus, daffodil have already poked out
  3. the coffee smells intoxicating
  4. rhododendrons, cedar, hemlock are green against the white
  5. the silhouette of maple, oak, ash branches on a blue-gray sky is for watercolorists
  6. reruns of film noir are on TCM
  7. you can see the wind in snowspouts
  8. it's not Siberia
  9. there's nothing like a group of people pushing someone out of a snowbank for happy comradarie
  10. it gives you time to think . . . think about spring.
