In the lucky third

I read in today's paper that in any given year, only a third of the Earth gets any snow. We definitely now live in the lucky third.

Attentive readers will be able to guess where this snowball wound up.

Welcome to my world. They were late pulling the winter switch in Vermont, though--not a single snowflake until after Christmas.

I'm surprised to hear that. We got our first snowfall Oct. 24, and I've lost count of how many snowfalls we've had since. Not until Jan. 21, however, did we get snow that stayed on the ground for longer than a day or so. That Jan. 21 snow is still with us, in fact.
