    The Weight of Winter

     

    After a small reprieve from Winter with temperatures rising into the 60's for a day, we were given another dose of this season with what the weathermen are fond of referring to as a "wintery mix". This precipitation arrived in the form of a slow steady freezing rain which coated everything in ice and an encore of 4 inches of new snow. For the next several days temperatures hovered around the zero degree mark. As Spring vies for position, we see all the extremes but the ice is beginning to melt, and the Missouri river beginning to flow again. It is only a matter of time until the crocus will bloom heralding the advent of Spring.
