New Year’s Eve

The north wind doth blow,
And we shall have snow,
And what will the Robin do then, poor thing?
He’ll sit in a barn,
And keep himself warm,
And hide his head under his wing, poor thing.

Old English Nursery Rhyme

Except that this is an American Robin, not an English Robin (which is quite a different bird), and the wind is blowing out of the south-west rather than the north, we’ve already had snow, and there aren’t all that many barns in Toronto.

However, although completely inaccurate in every detail, that little rhyme pretty much sums up the end of this year here in this lovely, frozen city.

Happy New Year, everybody! See you in 2014.
