Today it stopped snowing and, with my military greatcoat to keep out the elements, I trudged through the snowbanks and once again sought the Tundra swans.
So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past
And there they were.
Addendum: the coast is clear, you may fire up your Ebay account and start your own search for a greatcoat. Happy bidding.
