Happy first day of spring, everyone! Spring: a time of growth and renewal, of puddles and flowers and green lawns! Of course, here in Duluth, it’s been snowing all day and there are still giant drifts everywhere. The sky is grey and dreary, and the roads are covered in so much ice that I fell four times walking a mile and a third to school this morning. So yeah… Our spring doesn’t really start until late April. There’s so much snow, I even wrote a poem about it. Hope you enjoy reading it.
Flake flutters, falls
Silence mutters, calls
Gathers on ground
Amasses in mound
On the bright side, it got colder again, so my quinzhee has re-frozen. With any luck, it’ll hold for another month or so. After that, it’s back to the tree house!
P.S. We are headed down to St. Paul today to watch a live broadcast of NPR’s “A Prairie Home Companion”. Check out the show this weekend, you might recognize one of the guests!
