Lull

I'm writing today from my sister-in-law's house in Virginia, not too far from Washington DC. A trip with two full days here to visit relatives, to get a taste (especailly for Lisa, who originates from the USA) of American and international foods that are rarer that a unicorn in Melksham, and to catch up on what's in the bookstores on the computer shelves, in the computer stores, and on other bits and pieces.

Chance would be a fine thing. We flew in Thursday, with predictions of a storm from dawn on Saturday; yesterday was spent from first light right though to way past dark in a round of visiting - people, places, stores, and we got back late and tired. And, yes, all the important stuff complete.

When I looked out the window, dawn today, all was quiet. It's very cold, and the air is so dry that there's an electrostatic discharge every time the dog come up to say "hi". The road is just turning from the black of tarmacadam to a pure white as gentle flakes have started to settle. Chance for a really good family day here. Every cloud has a silver lining.
