Snowy day in Cambridge

Open a fridge door in the Netherlands and everybody starts bleating about an Elfstedentocht.  -- Gerard Joling

Winter came a week later to Cambridge – snow arrived last night and accumulated to about four inches this morning.  I really enjoy the glaze that it puts onto the University’s gothic buildings, the utter blackness of the River Cam against the snow.  Nobody put on Nordic skis and took off down the streets as would be the norm in Boston or Chicago, but Cambridge has lots of winter charms of its own.

But without ice skates, regrettably.
