    This post of yours has confirmed my view that I shall never again seek out snowy landscapes. I loved them as a child but now they restrict me. Are you at home yet? I do hope so.

    • Snowy landscapes are fine – as long as you stay in a heated car, and have a good driver..

      Am I home? Home is wherever I build my igloo!
