Editor's Note: Since Allen often gives the names of the plays and lectures he sees I'm thinking Rubber was the focus of the speech he and Alice went to hear. Doing minimal research one can find that the turn of the 20th Century was a busy time in the history of rubber. The Michelin Man was a toddler, production was shifting regions and growing strong and more than one scandal was developing over the treatment of workers on two different continents. I'm betting it was a thrilling lecture. If you are interested in learning more I found this site very helpful.
On to the weather...SNOW on October 27th. That is upstate New York in a word. On more than one Halloween our costumes were hidden under parkas but who doesn't love the first snow? Pure magic. It is February/March/April snow that batters one's enthusisam. One May there was snow on Diana's birthday.
