It's our annual snow day. I believe other places got more and by the time I got around to taking a picture of our house, much had melted. What appears to be tire tracks in our drive way is actually HI spelled out by the shuffling feet of some neighborhood kids.
The university is closed although I don't have classes today anyhow. Many places are shut down and the city is enjoying the excitement. I am going out with some girlfriends from grad school tonight and the restaurant where we have reservations is set to call us if they close, apparently in the event that the melted snow re-freezes.
My favorite part is stepping outside hearing the dripping and running water as everything melts. I had forgotten that spring has a distinct sound that we don't get to enjoy down here except maybe one day a year.
