Snowmaggedon struck NL a month ago. The army came to dig us out. Streets have been icy, and snowbanks
are high, so not much visiting has been going on.
We have cabin fever, that claustrophobic feeling of having been inside for too long!
This requires creativity to cope with. Yesterday I did a sociological study of our town’s telephone directory (phone book). Of approximately 3,200 residents, there are 36 main surnames listed. 72 listings are listed for the name Abbott, then come a bunch of Butlers, and the Waye clan comes near the end. Most residents are inter-related somehow.
Irish Catholic residents settled certain communities, while English Protestants formed other towns.
When we moved here we found only a handful of practising Catholics, but no matter, I have been church visiting.
Perhaps I will do a sociological study on that too.
Great creativity is required for sufferers of cabin fever.
