The snowhead.

The hat is back...

 ... and a new head too. A tiny head... but a head nonetheless:  Yesterday, the head and hat were gone. Two days ago, the full-sized head was there, with the hat, and the overall effect was much more sprightly and exuberant, with the cane flung upward as if dancing like Fred Astaire. Today, with the warmer weather, the snow is sagging, and the snowman, bent over, seems to be using the cane like an old man who needs a cane. [Author: [email protected] (Ann Althouse)]

I finally made it out to see the sunrise once again.

 Had not made it out since February 2. Just too cold! And I only need it to be feels-like 9° to be willing to do it. I've done these sunrise runs since September 2019, and — not counting when we were out of town — I'd only ever missed an occasional day, maybe 2 days once or twice. I think I've missed more days this February than in all the other time combined. Ah, well! I was happy to get out.  [Author: [email protected] (Ann Althouse)]

Watch bullet trains powering through snow in Japan

Traveling often as a youngster in Britain, the land of bad trains, I adored seeing the Shinkansen high-speed rail services on TV. It still seems a fine example of what can be accomplished when officials are competent, capable of long-term planning, and freed of perverse incentives: three things rarely found in England and never all at once. — Read the rest
