Very early this morning the temperature dipped to 14 degrees and there was a splash of rain and, once again, a very light dusting of snow.
I found just outside my front door today that some fallen leaves had gotten trapped in a wet spot that then froze. Later when the temperature rose most of the leaves blew away. But they left behind their footprints and one of their colleagues.
Cool, huh? Well, actually, it was cold and it still is. When I went out to retrieve the mail the temperature was only in the 30's and a bit of a brisk wind was making it chillier still.
O.K. I've had enough winter. Bring on the warmer temperatures!
p.s. I can't help remembering a bit of doggerel from some radio program when I was a kid: "Whether it's cold, or whether it's hot, we're gonna have weather, whether or not!"
