I went for a drive yesterday to escape the inversion. I thought if I could get up high enough, I might break through the fog and see the sun! Yes, the sun was in Mantua. It was very cold but seeing the sun felt good. Sometimes, I wonder how my ancestors coped with the long winters in Northern Europe. They didn't have much choice and at least I have electric lights and central heat. Still I dream of palm trees and sandy beaches.
