I was plenty bundled up for the job, as I kept my jammies on under my jeans, wore two scarves around my neck, hat and gloves, the thick, non-slippery gloves good for driving and shoveling, and only the tips of my fingers felt cold. Now I am waiting for the temperature to rise one more degree, so I can post this as "13 on the 13th."
But in case it remains at 12, I offer this list of Literary Waterways--literary journals with some kind of water, body of water, or liquid in their name. I'm sure there are more, but here are 13:
Crab Creek Review
The Fourth River
Spoon River Poetry Review
Water Stone Review

I have here her book A Gate at the Stairs, retrieved for free from the library sale, on that day after the last day when they want you just to take stuff so they don't have to move it elsewhere, to read some day.

and the one I'm currently reading: Saving Fish from Drowning, by Amy Tan (above). I am 1/3 of the way through and have crossed the border into Burma and reached the passage that explains the phrase "saving fish from drowning."
They get stuck in literary waterways.
