Reader from Ohio tundra endures - swilling caffeinated ambrosia

Coping with a Russian clime and aftermath

All is quiet on the northern front this snowy mid-December Sunday morn. A nice rabbit-tracker graced our corner of the world in the dark wee hours post meridian, but Mrs. Jim and I, being not of an inclination to participate in such outdoor activity, have chosen to remain inside, swilling hot caffeinated ambrosia and leaving the peace-loving genus sylvilagus be.

To the curious who will in·ev·i·ta·bly demand to know which of the 17 lagomorph species in the genus sylvilagus graced Jim's corner of the world this morning, we will inquire, but answer may come there none. - CM
