Snow, Evacuation Day, and introducing Blood In The Earth
I wish the meteorologists had been wrong. I had enough snow for the year, thanks. I didn't really want another round of it. And yet, they're expecting up to SEVEN INCHES overnight. In the city. Dreaming of a White St. Patrick's Day, I guess.

Or, here, Evacuation Day.

For those who don't live in the immediate region, yes, there is such a holiday as Evacuation Day. It's from the Revolution, and it's the day the British soldiers evacuated Boston. I think. This is always celebrated on the day it happened, not a corresponding Monday.

It happened March 17.

My theory is that Boston's Irish leaders went through the books looking for anything to declare St. Patrick's Day a city holiday.

If so, here's to you, lads. The midweek break is great, even if it is snowy.

I didn't do a ficlet today, trying to decide on a scheme for them. There's a fic I've left neglected at Sugarquill for a long time, sort of running out of steam. What would you all think of me doing it in these short little ficlet bursts here?

The fic takes place during the Norman invasion, and features the progenitors of the Weasley, Malfoy, and Potter clans. All OCs, of course, but very much a Potterverse version of the magical world.

Blood In The Earth
The Norman invasion brings chaos and mixed blessings to Muggle Britain, but to Wizarding Britain, it brings a deadly force--l'ordre de la mal foi, the Order of the Bad Faith. The Weasel family of Ottery must find a way to bind their power.

Sound like a plan to (a) finish this? and (b) be remotely entertaining to anyone?

A. Yes, it is a decent plan.

B. Very much so, I wondered what had happened to the continuation :)

Evacuation Day?

I completely missed that growing up down there. Or, it was have been drowned out by the St. Patty's day festivities.

*Hums opening bars to 'When Irish Eyes are Smiling'...*

I'll be wracking my brain all day trying to remember this.

My theory is that Boston's Irish leaders went through the books looking for anything to declare St. Patrick's Day a city holiday.

Heck yes! Does this mean you get the day off and can spend it at the pub? That's been on my list of goals in life for years.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!!!!!!
