This morning, once again it was snowing. It was another steely gray day. I found it hard to get motivated. But when I went to put mail out, I noticed that it had begun to rain. I went back in and pulled on my boots and a jacket and went out to start shoveling. Rain falling on the snow could turn to icy slush and our driveway has just enough slope that it can make it difficult to get all the way to the garage when things ice up.
I shoveled the walk, and then started the driveway, and the rain fell, and all around me was the sound of water running off the eaves and dripping trees. There was a breeze, and it wasn't cold. It felt almost like ~ dare I say it? ~ spring!
