"It was imprudent of us, in the first place, to become authors. We could have become something regular, but we managed not to.
We were lucky, but we were also determined." Roy Blount Jr

"I don’t change the facts to enhance the drama. I think of it the other way round, the drama has got to fit the facts,
and it’s your job as a writer to find the shape in real life."
Hilary Mantel

Our Icy Little Lake

The brief warm spell didn't change the look of our little lake. There was surface melting, leaving puddles, but the ice sheet is intact. With frequent thawing and freezing cycles, it's not very thick yet and therefore extremely unsafe!

The skaters and the ice fishermen must wait...for a sustained spell of brutally cold weather. I do want the lake to freeze hard but don't want to suffer for it!
