Let It Snow


OK, there really wasn't all that much. Even so, the first snow of the season dusted Middle Tennessee this morning with what John Milton once called "the sublime glory of whitness."

Early this morning, My family and I (that would be three little un's and my beautiful bride) headed for a nearby hill (such as they are in the mid-state) and enjoyed some sledding. It was grand indeed. "The heavens and the earth declare the glory of God".....

Bonnie: That is a line from one of his political tracts written during the English Civil War. In this particular essay, he was describing the battle field in Scotland during the Battle of Kelso.
