Snow—Emergency Additional Post

BLIZZARD OF '77
Actually began in December '76. Later a Nada Surf song.

CRYSTALLOGRAPHY, BY CHRISTIAN BÖK
Canadian wiz's beautifully experimental poems capture the season. Buy it!

"FIRE AND ICE" BY PAT BENATAR
"You come on like a flame," then—what? Still confusing.

FLURRIES
Stare at them too long, recreate ambience of old newsreel.

ICICLES
Start looking for these characters to appear soon. Be careful!

"LET IT SNOW"
Perfect: "Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow."

MUTANT SNOWMEN
Kids' creations had succumbed to warming temperatures. Time to rebuild.

"MY FAVORITE THINGS," FROM THE SOUND OF MUSIC
Favorite line: "Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes."

FROM STEVENS'S "THE SNOW MAN":
"[N]othing that is not there, and the nothing that is."

WINTER
We like it right now, but check back in February.
