March Madness

Yesterday felt like May. February returns tomorrow. Some forecasts call for a foot of snow, while the National Weather Service stubbornly refuses to commit to more than half an inch on either Friday or Saturday.

A foot of snow on top of applesauce won't amount to a vast improvement or prolong the season more than a couple of days. Spring arrives next Tuesday, so the sun gets twelve hours or more to broil the snow from then on. But cloudy, cold weather will stretch things out.

Yesterday, the slush and puddles kept me from going very far after work. The ideal time would have been around 9 or 10 a.m.

The snow stayed slushy overnight as rain showers degraded it further. Trudging in it will be as good at home as it would be here.
