"Spring" Break

Although the snow in Madison has been melting during the relatively warm days, the cold nights come on again and we've still got mountains of snow, much of it dirty walls of angry-wavelike snow lining the streets. It's often this way in the spring, as winter reluctantly lets go, leaving in a slow-moving huff, smearing the streets and yards with mud, revealing the packed brown grass and leaves and broken tree branches that accumulated over the winter.

But that passes, and then color returns, the grass greens, trees grow their leaves back, and soon, lilacs and tulips and the rest of summer's bounty comes bounding in.
