Thaw

For the first time in what feels like donkey’s years, the half-foot thick ice slabs that have accumulated on every bit of lawn area downtown has softened on top.  The sidewalks are almost standard width again and the slush puddles at the corners are either liquid or semi-solid, with no shear frozen surfaces lurking beneath the surface.

I don’t have much expectation that this is winter’s final fling, but we had sun all day and more forecast for tomorrow so at least there seems to be a recovery of general public spirit.
