The "One inch of snow" promised for overnight in Indy became "Three inches and still falling" by this morning; outdoors, we've got a kind of perilous fairlyland, with a nice layer of fluffy new snow atop the frozen leavings of the previews precipitation. On the (mostly) positive side, the new snow has stuck to trees, power line and roofs in the precise manner of holiday-card art; after a series of mild winters, it is a welcome reminder that this season, too, has its beauties.

"I saw to what extent the people among whom I lived could be trusted as good neighbors and friends; that their friendship was for summer weather only; that they did not greatly propose to do right; that they were a distinct race from me by their prejudices and superstitions."
