My son north of Houston may get snow on Monday. He is from NH, his girlfriend from outside of Pittsburgh so they find the actions of everyone else amusing. The school system, for example, has sent out a bulletin with a list of emergency numbers including the National Hurricane Center, the Houston Flood Warning system, and the Hurricane Preparedness guide. Their friends in the north are reminding them that proper preparation includes running out in a panic to get milk and bread.Dunkin' Donuts is seriously missing a trick here by not installing the idea in people's minds that they should also go get donuts and coffee, because God Only Knows when you will get out again.
I mentioned recently that CS Lewis's love of the quiddity of weather is not so exciting as one would think, given the very moderate character of English weather. As here.
