Just noticed that Bob has little digital snowflakes drifting down across his blog.
Bob, of course, lives in Los Angeles, where he is unlikely to deal with actual snow, let alone ice or cold or sleet or slush or any of the other manifestations of the season. I think out there, a warm, gentle rain might occasionally fall during the very darkest depths of winter.
More importantly, he’s reposted his round-the-world saga, which originally ran on this site. If you didn’t see it then, go read it now.
