Today I hit the jackpot - it was snowing!
(C.S. Manish 2010)Yesterday afternoon, as the temperatures hovered in the mid-40's, I watched the 2-plus feet thick layer of ice begin to melt, leaving behind the last remnants of once-magnificent faux-glaciers. I was convinced that winter still had one last stand left and feared that it would get warm enough for the trees to start budding before a cold front rolled around and killed them off.
Fear not, fellow snow-lovers, order has been restored in the galaxy - for a few hours at least. Watching the snow swirl around outside has calmed me down and I am ready for the day. Again.
