Have you ever noticed how depressing it is when snow starts melting? There's always these piddly leftover crumbs of dirty white. The snowmen become emaciated. It's snow, but it reminds you of actual snow that you can play in. But as you long to go sledding and have a snowball fight, not one snowflake falls.
On the plus side, it was very wet today because of the melting, and I made a very good snowman. I was proud of it. If I can figure out how to get photos on my blog, I will put some of him up. Cheers!
