I don’t have a problem with having names for the storms. Kind of cute and MAYBE it will help me remember them. When you get as many, each winter, as we do, up here in New Hampshire, they all kind of blur, and blend into each other. With the ever increasing heights of the snow piles a constant reminder as to how much snow we did get. I also tend to remember how many times we lost power!

Hunter, last week, was all rain and washed away TONS of snow and I do mean that quite literally!

Inga, today, was gentle and kind. I can live with Ingas.

What is scary is that I know people with MOST of these names.

I do NOT think we have enough names to get us till March — April 2018.

Yes, these are MY drawings, in crayon, when I was about 6 or 7.

For those that are familiar with Ceylon/Sri Lanka the scenes should be recognizable! The beach, with the ships and a kite flyer is Galle Face, in Colombo.

The top picture is of Sri Lankan devil dancers.

A car on the 2nd floor of the house was NOT some aberration. That was actually the case. The house, the house that I lived in, was built on the side of a hill. So there was a level below the car porch, if you viewed the house from the back!

The hunter is a genuine Vedda — the original indigenous folks of the island. I had been out to see them.
