Though she had lived on the Texas Gulf Coast for a number of years, Jessica’s mind would occasionally–nostalgically–drift back to Wisconsin where she was born.  Then she would take a quick peek at the picture on her desk and remember her aversion to that awful white stuff that regularly fell from the sky a good part of the year back in the vast frozen tundra of the “Great White North . . .”
