Snow Day

early march usually signals a few 40 degree days, some 50s, some sun, you know, those first really comfortable t-shirt days after a usually harsh midwest winter.  don't get me wrong, i love being out in the cold, but why live here if one can't appreciate the differences and shades of the seasons.

today is snow.  soft, moisture-laden snow.  sticks to the oak branches, coats the pines, dies a soft death on the running Walnut, not cold enough for ice.  not this late in winter.

walk, walk 5 miles, maybe more, less maybe, who cares.  compelled to get out in it.  it's a snow day, after all.
