It's not a Tufting
Snow. It's a Needles, Prisms and maybe a couple of
Plates kind of snow. So we're not talking actual Flakes
or Dendrites. We're not talking gentle cotton ball type
things floating around out there. And if there's a bit
of wind, then we'll have what they call White Out. What
that is I hope not to find out because it doesn't sound
in the least pleasant.
perhaps it's the sort of snow Laplanders will be familiar
with. And also worth your correspondent reminding himself
that in the course of his many incarnations The Rabbit wrote
a pamphlet extolling the virtues of living as a Laplander.
Mind you his retreat to those Northern Climes had been
precipitated by a vision
of a universal empire of revolutionary police terror that
had followed De Quincy's review of the The Rabbit's
Revolution of Reason..
