Mark Twain did not say ” Everyone talks about the weather but no one does anything about it.”  That would be that Charles Dudley Warner.

Twain did mention how an Arctic ship’s captain once told him it was so cold the first mate’s shadow froze to the deck and had to be ripped loose.  And then they only got about two thirds of it back.

It’s cold, it’s very sunny, it’s January.  Not much natural melting going on today.  At these temperatures even the road salt and brine gives up.

I’m taking the hint, time to refill the bird feeder and put away Christmas.  A project for a winter afternoon.

Brian Wilson readily acknowledged their influence.
