Journal Entry: January 8, 1916

I don't think it is ever going to stop snowing. It has been snowing since December 21 with just a few pauses here and there. We have managed to fly just three times since it started and it seems there is no end in sight. Of course, the bright side to this bad weather is we are all safe and sound and we were able to celebrate both Christmas and New Years without being disturbed by wartime activities. There are, of course, only so many books and card games that one can play and nerves are beginning to fray. Hopefully, the weather breaks soon and we can resume our normal duties or I will be forced to design more physical activities for the men such as snowball fights.
