Contemplating spring

They say an optimist is someone who leaves the patio furniture out all winter because spring will surely come soon.


It's snowed so much in the past couple of weeks that it is hard to see around corners of the streets in Halifax. There's no place to put all the snow. It's made the streets so narrow often only one car can get through at a time. People say it's never been this bad but I remember the first year I was here, in 1984, the winter was just like this. It was a new experience for me then. I'd not seen so much snow in my life. And certainly didn't know how to drive on snow and ice. I went off the road a couple of times. It's still not my favorite past-time, the winter driving. In every other way I do enjoy the snow.
