Life in the streets of Vienna.
Before Christmas in Vienna.
the atheists went to parties and drank.
or (to the atheists) "Look out for a wall!" (Dave Barry)
Had been heaping field and highway
Every pine, and fir and hemlock
And the poorest twig on the elm-tree
When I no longer thrill to the first snow of the season,
I'll know I'm growing old. (Lady Bird Johnson)
There is nothing in the world more beautiful than forest clothed to its very hollows in snow.
It is the still ectasy of nature, wherin every spray, every blade of grass, every spire of reed,
every intricacy of twig , is clade with radiance. (William Sharp)
Global warming? It was -18 degrees C, in the morning, 20 December.
The first fall of snow is not only an event, it is a magical event. (Author unknown)
