We haven't had a snowfall here in four or so years, but we had a beautiful one yesterday, on Inauguration Day. Of course, the town fell to its knees and it wasn't just to give thanks for our new president. We've got a lot of snow scaredy cats here. One place that remained open was Neal's Deli, owned and run by our friends Matt and Sheila---it was featured in Bon Appetit magazine within the first month of its operation! Barack and Michelle Obama had pheasant and champagne for lunch. David and I had hot dogs and cupcakes. Is this a great country or what?
And though this drawing of a snowy day on the tarmac at Paris airport dates from a couple of weeks ago, the feeling here yesterday was similar. Except yesterday I didn't have to sit on a plane for five hours before taking off.
