Another Tolkien comment

You know in The Fellowship of the Ring, where Aragorn and Boromir walk through chest-deep snow, clearing a path for the smaller members of the party? The snow we've had here lately makes me think perhaps Tolkien had never seen more than an inch or two of snow. We got maybe eight inches, and I could barely walk through that.

Why walk THROUGH the snow? We have skis, we have (okay, I have) snowshoes (but you gave them to me...)

Travel light...
