    My wife is on the only train on the east coast that's running. All others have been cancelled in anticipation of the ice and snow to come tonight, tomorrow and Thursday. Happily, she has a sleeping car to herself, and that will be a great boon if, as the conductor has announced, the train may be up to 8 hours late or possibly stopped indefinitely. When and if she gets to NY, the local trains to her destination may also be shut down. Here in Jacksonville Fla, we're just south of the ice storm that is closing Georgia tonight and tomorrow. After last week's debacle, they are sparing nothing in anticipation of the storm of the century. Yikes!!! I have long felt that the only place for ice is in a glass of whiskey and only that in small quantities (the ice, not the whiskey).

    Do hope she is ok.
    Looks like we will have the wettest three months on record by end of week.
    And we have built lots of our housing on flood plains.

    So between South Australia, the UK, and the US, we've got the warmest january on record, the UK has the wettest, and the US simultaneously has coldest and driest between northeast and southwest?

    Well, I've only lived here for about 6 months (and my car is still wearing a PA license plate), so I can't say I've got any knowledge of him or his books. I've always stuck to fiction except for photography books.

    Reading down under is hilarious for an aussie, but I'm sure it's just as funny to the rest of you. A short history of nearly everything should be required reading in every school.

    The UK has compromised the water runoff and built on flood plain.
    The last century was wet in historical timescale for Aus and Ca.
    The UK needs to address its delinquencies. The other two need to use less water.
    When the UK rail system was not profitable they lifted lots of track some of the track was dual so they went to single! Some has been converted back again too much traffic for single.
    So not optimistic on what will happen next to avoid future years problems.

    However, we also seem to have a lot of people currently expressing surprise that a flood plain has flooded!

    While it should be plain to see!
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.
