The weather today was unusually — and unnaturally — warm for January. Snowbanks melted, ditches filled with water, streams rose in the woods. Taking advantage of the dry pavement, I drove out to the main post office to renew my passport, went to the grocery store, and drove up to campus to get folders of course material that I needed. Campus was quiet — students don't come back for another week. The paved walkways at school, normally covered this time of year with hard-packed snow and ice, were decorated instead with bird droppings, in patterns that looked to me like the birds were trying to be artistic.
