Hidden in wonder and snow, or sudden with summer,

This land stares at the sun in a huge silence

Endlessly repeating something we cannot hear.

Not written on by history, empty as paper,

It leans away from the world with songs in its lakes

Older than love, and lost in the miles.

 – F.R. Scott, Laurentian Shield

"It was the one great river which led from the eastern shore into the heart of the continent. It possessed a geographical monopoly; and it shouted its uniqueness to adventurers. The river meant mobility and distance; it invited journeyings; it promised immense expanses, unfolding, flowing away into remote and changing horizons."  – Donald Creighton, The Commercial Empire of the St. Lawrence: 1760-1850

The freezing rain is spotty. No power outages or downed trees are reported, but one happy photographer is seen focusing on the ice-encrusted underbrush.
