Like an army defeated
The snow hath retreated

- William Wordsworth,

This verse has been in my mind this week.  
We've had some above-freezing temperatures, and slowly the dirty old snow is melting away. 
The streets are filling with water (see our curb above), and the ground is getting sloppy.

No doubt, it will get colder before it officially stays warmer, and no doubt there's at least one or two big hits of snow coming before the end of March, but, we're on the upswing. 

Everything is muddy and dingy, but there is hope that green things will grow.

Winter's got a little more punch to pack in the next 6 weeks, but, it's on the outs- and that makes me happy.
