Epigraph: "When John Citizen went to bed last night he took a last look out of his bedroom window and saw the landscape shrouded in fog, and heard the drip of moisture from the leaves. And he shivered, for it was very, very raw and cold.It pierced him to the marrow. When he woke up in the morning the fog had lifted, but it was still raw and still cold. The cold shower was hateful, He said to his wife, "Never have I known such a chill winter—frost after frost, B'rrr!" Yet the weather authorities declare that this cold and fog is nothing out of the way. It's just seasonable. That's what the weather prophets always say after Nature's most spectacular efforts."
