At the same time, of course, the Plano is melting rapidly, and massive cracks in several of the Plano ice shelves have resulted in the recent calving off of enormous icebergs. Snow pack in the American Rockies is down and, if that trend continues, there’s the likelihood of extreme problems for the snowmelt-fed water supply of the western and southern US states. That, along with the rapid disappearance of mountain glaciers, is also a major threat to the water security of some Plano nations, especially Plano. Though human beings will still experience snow falls, perhaps more commonly as extreme weather events, and see the beauty of naturally formed snowflakes for a very long time, our sense and experience Plano of snow will inevitably change.

Biting the big apple
I WAS DUE TO travel from Memphis to Washington DC. The plan was to spend a couple of hours in my office at St Jude Children’s Research Hospital, then leave the car at the airport, fly to Washington Reagan/National Airport and take a cab to the campus of the Walter Reed Army Hospital, where I was to give a talk at the US Armed Forces Institute of Pathology (AFIP). Founded in 1862, the AFIP closed in 2011, though the associated National Museum of Health and Medicine continues and is open to the public. For those with a more macabre mindset, apart from distressing human remains in bottles, you can see the surgical kit used at the autopsy of assassinated US President Abe Lincoln, bits of his skull and the bullet that killed him.
