"neither rain nor snow nor glom of nit can stay these messengers abot their duty"...*
Herodotus' original words were "neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stay these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds" but we feel that Terry Pratchett's version has a certain catchy and more memorable quality ....Anyway, it's certainly rainy and definitely glommy, but are we stayed? Nope. We have the snugly raincoats and hoodies, we're swift, and we're abot our duty ...
