Sorry, I did not deliver yesterday’s paper.

I was busy writing on Germaine Guèvremont.  I liked Guèvremont’s Survenant more reading it this time than I did when I taught it.  I now see new dimensions: bucolic.  No telephone posts.  No wires.  It was another world.

After the great ice storm, the 1990s, the worst in recorded history, Hydro-Québec chose the expensive option.  Given climatic changes, they prepared for the worst.  However, we now have a lot of very thick wires.
