Wow.  Salt Wars.  Cold as heck.  I remember we got together a handful of
Isenfiri to carpool to it, and huddled together watching the fighting.  I
think the only fighter we fielded that day was Timofei.  I recall Michael
of Bedford and his five squires trying to run Tim down, but Tim just moved
so darn fast because he had very light armour.  Of course, that was also in
the days when folks wore carpet armour.  No one had any idea it was going
to SNOW!  We wrapped up in cloaks and blankets and anything we could find,
and the only space left to crash was in the hall, on the VERY COLD stone
floor.  We nearly froze to death, and in the morning we found we had
huddled so close together we looked like a many-headed beast!
