Luckily, by the crafty use of preventative magic [I'd packed those spiky things you clip on over your shoes to stop you sliding on packed snow/ice, just in case, so of course it didn't snow] the weather stayed unseasonably warm.
It wasn't all holiday. I finished the final draft of Fox Hunt and sent it to Manifold Press [they'd accepted it on the strength of an earlier draft], and I received the first round of edits this morning. It should be released on February 1st 2012.
