Cold again

Nine below in March. That's a jolt after the nice, melting day yesterday.

The effects of any cold weather are mitigated in March because you know it won't last forever. One month from now, the Twins will be playing, the snow will be melting and things will be looking up. If there's a blizzard or two in the meantime, fine.

I am partial to blizzards this winter because I want the swamp in front of my house to fill up. It drained last summer when the beaver dam holding the water in place broke down. It was also dry.
