Spring is Here… Sort of?

Spring thaw + fresh snow + falling temperatures = me falling four times on my way to school.

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.

Snow

Grayest light

Fuzzy white

Flake flutters, falls

Silence mutters, calls

Gathers on ground

Amasses in mound

Keeps descending

Colors blending

Never ending

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!

    Just happened to hear you on PHC. I love that you are thinking of paleontology! Check out the Conference on Fossil Resources coming up in May in Rapid City, South Dakota.
