Today it was 9 degrees when I went out for my morning walk. The mounds of plowed snow were crystallized in the cold air and glittering under the light of street lamps and the distant glimmer of the Moon.
But according to the weather app on my iPhone, we are in for some relief. Today the high temperature is supposed to inch above freezing, tomorrow the low temperature will be in the balmy 30s, and Thursday . . . well, on Thursday we’re supposed to get rain and the temperature is supposed to reach the 50s. (Rain, for those of you who had forgotten, is like liquid snow.)
The 50s! We’ll have massive snow melt, of course, but we’ll trade it gladly for reaching such sultry heights.
