Monday, Mar 7, 1887 Foggy and dark. The storm of rain here was snow up at home where a foot of snow fell. Bowyer went up Saturday to Rondout for ice boating and tobogganing but they closed the slide on account of the storm just as he reached there. The rail roads were blockaded and all trains behind time. I began a large picture of cumulus clouds opposite the sun, a recollection of a magnificent effect I saw at Norfolk when Gertrude and I were there ten years ago, but I am afraid I am not equal to it. In the evening I went around to the club and had a most delightful evening, an old time artistic night, with Eastman, Whittredge, Bristol, Perry, Bradford, Lafarge and Griswold. We staid until after midnight.
