Winter wonderland nurtures writing

The east coast of the United States is in the grips of a massive winter storm.  I live in North Carolina, and we're not used to this kind of frozen precipitation. It is typical to see an inch (2-3 cm) of snow each winter. We had that much in January. In the past 4 hours, we've acquired 5 inches, and now ice is falling on top of it.

This is crazy weather.

For a writer, this is perfect writing weather. I'm curled up with a cup of tea, half-listening to the newscasters, praying for the drivers who have not made it home yet, and pondering how to start my next, shiny-new book.

Keep safe, everyone. In the battle between car and icy roads, the ice usually wins!
