We’ve had the snowiest winter in Boston's history and it's not over yet.
But things seemed to be getting better when on March 9th our “undelivered” Sunday newspapers from February 15th emerged from a snow bank next to our sidewalk.
Recently, the temperature climbed above freezing for the first time in weeks. Although our street is still only one-lane wide, the mounds of snow next to the curb are lower and our sidewalks are passable. A friend reported he just realized that the three huge mounds of snow he walks by regularly actually contained three cars, now partially visible.
The days are getting longer, the temperatures will rise and spring will come. Somewhere under all that snow our purple and yellow crocuses are hoping to see daylight.
I can’t wait.
