<Duck> Well, actually, it first referred to Charlottesville winters like the 
one that finally caused UVA to close for snow for the first time in 150 
years('Isensnow')....a few years later, it became a reference to Black Diamond 
("ice'n'snow").  The idea originally came from the Led Zeppelin song, as I 
recall...they slurred it into the 'Land of the Isensnow', which I thought 
described the winter pretty well, having come from Texas.....
