The eclipse was impressive this morning, Helen. One clap of thunder 
accompanied it, by way of applause. Yesterday, there were a couple of 
massive claps, then - while I was out shovelling snow, an almighty one, 
in very still clear air and azure skies, after which the snow started up 
again. I was out again clearing snow around 08:00 this morning. No sign 
now (14:30) of path I cleared. I could get used to this. The neighbours 
are in awe of it, wrestlin with it as with a great big fluff, muscular 
angel. The children have made a towering snow god (sorry, man) at the 
corner of the road. When I went out to shift snow from the driveway 
again, in the dark of yesterday evening, for the third time in one day, 
I was met with another willing shoveller, belonging to a family 
newly-arrived next door, in his early teens and from Russia, who was out 
again this morning, digging his parents' chariot out of the snow. Very 
Dr Zhivago.

Pleease don't ask me to translate today's poem (copied below), which is 
my latest offering in the solstice series I usually post to my GAELIC-L 

Grianstad le hurú ré 2010-12-21

D'fhan an ghrian ina stad os cionn na hÉireann inniu
agus í idir dhá chomhairle faoi ar cheart di filleadh
nó dul caol díreach ar aghaidh amach as an stair
le misneach an té nach feasach di cad is dán di.
