  1. Thanks for the pictures. On my first tour I saw the Jaguar and my first thought was not of a favorite mid-50s model but of Inspector Morse. On my second run through I noticed very few hats - how much body heat is lost.... Given that most men have a causual hair style that wouldn’t be disturbed by a head covering, why no hat or cap with snow on the ground and heavy coats being worn.

    1. Looks like temps are in the 40sF/low 50sF with snow melting from storm the previous day, not actually that cold.

    2. Just a thought here.... Those associated with the university can get from building to building via a large system of tunnels. If they do emerge, the distances around campus are not huge, so no need for lots of bulk.

  2. Ah. General Thomas Gage. A good, decent man in a hopeless position, ordered by London to do the impossible. He had an inkling of what was happening and requested more troops. But neither he nor the ministry envisioned the full size of the tidal wave that was building.

  8. On this date(January 28th) in 1878 the first daily college newspaper began publication - Yale News. It reported that the temperature that day was in the high 40s - low 50s, a weather trend that has continued til this day.
