Last year on April 1st we awoke, aghast, to find that after two weeks of snow-free spring yard-tidying and bicycling, snow had fallen again.
Here we are a year and a bit later, on April 9th, and there are still great mounds of snow on the lawn. And it's snowing again today to beat the band. And no one is even surprised.
Spring sure is a long time getting here this year.
