But it's spring snow
I spent this morning shoveling the snow a storm dumped on us last night. It's what we call lake effect snow, and it's pretty common for us to get hit with a snowstorm or two during March.
We had parked out cars near the end of the driveway, so my husband was able to leave for work, and Shaggy Hair Boy for his piano lesson, but I worked at home today, taking half an hour to go out in the sunshine and shovel every time I felt like I needed a break. Shoveling snow is an appealing option when you're home grading papers.
This scene may look like winter, but really, it's spring snow. By late afternoon, the sun was already working on the sections of the driveway I'd shoveled, and I could even see some of the gravel. In my winter coat and mittens, I felt almost warm.
It's only a matter of time.
