Down East

Consult with Mark McPherran.

--A good rule for an ancient philosopher to follow generally, to be sure, but especially, it would seem, if one is planning a ski trip to SugarloafUSA.

I drove there yesterday to take advantage of 'kids pay their age' day (friends will understand). But winds of up to 90 mph shut down the mountain for the day.

Not that I regret seeing the winter scenery--but I don't doubt that if I had written to Mark, who lives about 45 minutes from the mountain, I would have gotten fair warning.

(A real post later.)
