Many Are Cold, but Few Are Frozen

Winter's Last Stand (Maybe)

It looks like winter and spring are having some kind of epic battle. First, bright green leaves suddenly appeared on trees and bushes, only to be covered in snow a few days later. Then it rained all night long, the first serious drenching of the year. By morning the rain had turned to snow again, and vast, lake-like puddles formed in streets throughout the city. What a welcome sight after so many frozen, parched months!

Every morning I look closely at the dry hills outside the city for traces of green. Maybe it's my imagination, but it seems to me that there's been a change in the brown and yellow hues of the mountains.
