This, or at least this much snow, was unexpected. It had been forecast as flurries and that sure was how it started off. Thought it would be but a passing dusting. Now maybe this had something to do with the 660′ elevation we are at. But, around 3pm it was coming down at a good clip.

I had to shovel the drive!

Given my anglophilic upbringing, Robert Louis Stevenson was one of the many British authors, alongside the likes of Enid Blyton, Captain W. E. Johns (who wrote the ‘Biggles‘ books), Richmal Crompton (of the ‘William’ series) and Sir Walter Scott, I was familiar with at a fairly early age — even though I was living in Ceylon (now Sri Lanka) at the time. I remember having had to read — and then summarize each chapter in 5 sentences — ‘Treasure Island’ when I was about 12. I think I read it multiple times — in that I was so taken by it.

I did NOT know his whole life story until just now — as I was researching this. Fascinating. Worthy of a book in its own right.
