With any luck, I’ve captured the official last snowfall of the year. On the left are images from my morning walk on Tuesday, while on the right are scenes from my morning walk on Friday. It’s been an odd week to say the least. We did our fair share of groaning at last week’s snow (and sleet, and hail), but I didn’t so much mind the Monday night snow that I woke up to on Tuesday morning. Even an April snow shower is easy to stomach under sunny blue skies. As I write this, I have the windows open and listen to the chirping of birds. The city has come alive. Our hibernation is over and we are collectively and enthusiastically seizing the day. A morning ride revealed as much—the trails are crowded with people on bike and on foot. What remains of the snow are only parking lot mini mountains. And that’s all I’ll say for now. It’s not a day to be sitting inside.
