Its been 4 days now in middle Tennessee that we have been snowed in and under ice. Luckily we still have power and a gas log fireplace. Other blessings include sufficient victuals, more than sufficient single malt whiskey (Laphroaig) and an enormous stack of woodenboat magazines. I am amusing myself by re reading old Peter Spector columns. He is my favorite living writer and I'll forever admire his wit. Thank God for this 5 foot tall stack of old magazines- they do have a use.
