Lamy In Snow

It’s snowing in Sofia — 10 centimeters so far with a bit more on the way — and as an Oregon kid who had exactly one snow day off from school while growing up, the sight of the white stuff never fails to delight. Of course the first thing I did this morning was throw a pen on it and take a photo. Луда Американка — crazy American.

    Awesome! I thought we weren’t going to hear from you at all. What a pleasant surprise.
    And don’t those Lamy demonstrators just look lovely anywhere? 😁

    It’s supposed to snow in New Siberia, er I mean, New England tomorrow. I am not excited. I will not lay pens artfully in the snow. But I respect those who do.

      The things I do for blogging!

      I’m not sure if I’ll ever be jaded over snow. Ask me again in three months. This whole “four seasons” thing is a foreign concept to me anyway.

        To be fair, I’ve lived in the frozen biscuitless wastelands for (counts on her fingers) 20 years including college, and I still am all excited by at least the first three snowstorms every year.

    I liked this post, it made me smile. I ran outside into the -25C of an Ontario winter, and threw my pen into the snow for a photograph…

    I’m hoping I’ll find it again, maybe April/May sometime.

    Thanks. Keep them coming. 2 degrees F and 15mph wind here.

    Rule No. 1: NEVER leave your pen in an unheated car for more than 20 minutes.
    Rule No. 2: Carry inked fountain pens in inside pockets only.
    Rule No. 3: NEVER order ink online between November and February.

    No 3 Explained – Even if the ink itself is freeze resistant (there are brands that make it), sometimes -35C or colder can make the bottles, or cartridges split (Platinum cartridges are the worst, they have a metal ball bearing in them that can be a real pain); and Canada Post often leaves parcels in your post-box, at the end of the drive, even when they shouldn’t… and don’t get me started on the day the municipal snow-plow hit our post box!

    Keep ’em coming! Stay warm!
