We had warm weather last week. The snow was melting yesterday. There were puddles everywhere. I saw a brown patch on the front of the apartment across the street. I thought it was sand. I got excited when I realized that it was actually dried, withered grass.
But wait, no, it is not quite spring yet. It is cold again today. The puddles have turned into ice once again. And although the ice was covered with fresh snow, the sidewalks have become slippery again.
