The winter that wasn’t

It’s been an odd winter. We keep getting snow, but then it all melts. Three or four times now we’ve had several inches on the ground all vanish in a few days. Yesterday E and I were walking around town doing some errands and it felt like spring. The sun was warm on our faces, the trees were full of fuzzy pussy willow buds, and the air smelled of fresh mud. It was hard to believe that it’s still January.

Maybe February will clobber us with snowstorms and cold. Who knows? For now, it doesn’t feel like much of a winter.
