Cold. And with a bit of rain. Together it made for ice everywhere last night and today.
The road to our house was, in effect, a skating rink. At least it could have been if it were not a slope. And said incline made walking up the road last night nearly impossible without cleats on your shoes. Going downhill was, of course, easier for obvious reasons — even if such travel was done at speeds exceeding those normally considered for being “on foot” (or more likely, yet unintentionally, “on derrière“).
I also did not see my shadow today. Will it be an early spring? Or does that only work for groundhogs. Personally, I am betting the first day of spring will be on March 20th this year.
