Robbie, our son, took this picture while wandering around Soulard (one of the historic (mid-1800s) parts of our city; takes it name from Antoine Soulard who surveyed the area for Spain in the days of yore) yesterday (he was waiting for his favorite Pub (ITAP – International Tap House) to open. Robbie’s picture captures the French flavor of our city and also our current frozen state of nature. It’s so cold here – “How cold is it?” you ask – it’s so cold that we literally have about a 4 inch sheet of ice that currently makes up our entire driveway and walking out the door presents, to a person so bold, a constant state of peril :).
Today, however, we are in for 48 degree temps (according to the meteorologists and they better not be wrong). We hope to do some thawing out. Maybe a Pub would be a good place to start.
Wherever you are, whatever you do, do it well today and enjoy!
