I'm not dreaming of a white Christmas.

AT first it was beautiful. White sculptures everywhere, a frozen hanging basket glittering like a chandelier, spiders' webs iced and studded with jewel droplets, trees draped in white as though in blossom. I was happy to gaze from the window with only occasional forays to get food to the birds. But then I had to get to work and suddenly all that whiteness lost its charm.

Snowblindness threatened as I gazed from the train at mile after mile of unbroken white. My feet were numb, my fingertips painful, my normal routine of travel disrupted. And they say it could last into the New Year. I tell you, White Christmas sucks.
