"Still lie the sheltering snows, undimmed and white;
And reigns the winter's pregnant silence still;
No sign of spring, save that the catkins fill,
And willow stems grow daily red and bright.
These are days when ancients held a rite
Of expiation for the old year's ill,
And prayer to purify the new year's will."
Helen Hunt Jackson, A Calendar of Sonnet's: February

The Hairy Hands

During a news report, the presenter mentioned a legend from Devon - the hairy hands.

The Hairy Hands is a ghost story/legend that built up around a stretch of road in Dartmoor in the English county of Devon, which was purported to have seen an unusually high number of motor vehicle accidents during the early 20th century.

According to the story, the Hairy Hands are a pair of disembodied hands that appear suddenly, and grab the steering wheel of a moving car or the handlebars of a motorcycle, and then force the victim off the road.

Can you imagine trying to tell your insurance company?

    I think that is a very scary thing to imagine, but there are lots of myths and legends around that part of the country that have become famous over the years.
