We have escaped snow so far, but it's a very cold night and we could still get some. This is no way for spring to begin. Returning from the store I tracked a soggy, dead oak leaf into the house. I only found it later when I saw it stuck to the kitchen linoleum, looking like a flattened tree frog. There haven't been tree frogs here for years, but the reminder of them saddened me. The whole day was sad already. Here's the equinox, and it still feels like February.
