Cold North

Cold North
I received an e-mail from a friend wondering how we were surviving in the “cold north”….

“Although in the United States we look on New York as a ‘northern city,’ it is more than 700 miles south of London, more than 500 miles south of Paris --- and some 70 miles south of Rome.” (from John Kieran’s Natural History of New York City)

The Eagle
He clasps the crag with crooked hands;
Close to the sun in lonely lands,
Ring'd with the azure world, he stands.
The wrinkled sea beneath him crawls;
He watches from his mountain walls,
And like a thunderbolt he falls.
---Alfred Tennyson
