Hi Erik, Great idea for a show! I was out in it yesterday and what was so great was how the snow makes everything sound so silent and hushed. Luckily I don't have to drive in it--bus trips took a while longer but that's inevitable.

Really enjoyed hearing your thoughts about snow. It is beautiful. 1971 and 2008 were particularly snowy. In 1971 the snow was so high we could climb on the garage roof and jump into the snow in the back yard--what fun!!!
