Book of the Day: Winter Has Lasted Too Long

Argh! We awoke this morning to find an aggravating layer of wet snow on the ground and more arriving at a slant, just in time to ball up getting the kids off to school and driving in to open the bookshop. Just yesterday I had kicked at the small crusty remnant of snow-gravel mix on our lawn and thought about uncovering some of my flower beds to hunt for snowdrops and crocuses and now this backtracking weather pattern!

I am resorting to a prominent display of the Book of Day in our front window: James Kavanagh's poetry collection, Winter Has Lasted Too Long to ward off any further retrograde meteorological activity.
