Snow!

Relentless wintry weather affected much of America in January and February, but snow was part of the fun in Park City, Utah, when the 44¢ Olympic Winter Games stamp was issued Jan. 22. I had a chance to attend the stamp's first-day ceremony, along with snowboarding athletes and their hardy fans.

This month’s Linn's newsletter includes photos from that event, along with information about new U.S. stamps that will be issued in March, features on cats and Charlemagne, and a preview of the next issue of Scott Stamp Monthly.

Snowy days are perfect for staying inside and enjoying your collection – and to catch up on the latest stamp news with Linn's and Scott Stamp Monthly.
