The Reign of Icy Terror is Over

Alternate title could have been "The Rain of Icy Terror is Over", given the amount of sleet we've gotten this winter...

Yay, Spring! This winter hit the northeastern United States pretty hard, although on a global scale, this past winter was the 4th warmest on record, with especially warm weather hitting the Snowbilly Griftatrix' former stomping grounds. It'll still be a little cool at night for a while, but the first harbingers of the coming spring came three weeks ago. Today, I heard another harbinger of the warm weather- the first Mister Softee truck jingled its way down the block this afternoon.

It's nice to see life coming back to the gray, gritty landscape. There are still sooty mountains of ice and snow piled in local parking lots, some of which will probably last until Easter, but that's okay, they're simple reminders that winter is done and gone.
