Do Alligators play Saminilla

I happen to be reading a book about deaths in the Grand Canyon, a gripping review I'd recommend to anyone who likes exactly the same books I do. The hypothermia victims have my ardent attention at the moment, as the 40 seconds it takes me to go to the mailbox and back are excruciating at -7°F. Good training for the inauguration, where the temperature is predicted to hover around freezing. Sounds delightful!

I took this picture on Wednesday when the snow was coming down. In other news, Brian is working on the recipe for hot buttered rum. He made a vat of this butter-batter to which you add rum and hot water. It's like drinking a spice cake. There are approximately 600 calories per swig. It's great stuff.
