Quote of the Day (Robert Frost, on a ‘Winter Evening Walk’)

“I had for my winter evening walk—
No one at all with whom to talk,
But I had the cottages in a row
Up to their shining eyes in snow.” —American poet Robert Frost (1874-1963), “Good Hours,” in North of Boston (1915)
After a couple of inches of snow on Tuesday—and more expected closer to the weekend—my area of the Northeast may see more of the kind of scenes Frost had in mind over a century ago.
The only problem: The temperatures (and that pesky wind chill factor!) will be so low that many won’t want to be out, lest they experience frostbite.
