Gaia

It snows!

After a week of sunny days, spring flowers and the first small leaves on trees, winter wakes up and realizes that he is late for his job. Yes, it is true: While North America has suffered from one blizzard after another and conservatives talk about a new ice age, we have only had a few days of snow all winter, mostly it has been green and reasonably mild. Recently it looked like spring had set in. Now, the snow is already making the lawn white, and the neighbor has stopped working in his garden.
