It's still cold here in Fall City. The snow is evaporating but not melting and there's more on the way, anyway. Where is Spring? When can I start planting the garden? This all that matters here and now. We have no ruthless dictator stealing our money, no mercenary army killing and raping the populace, no pirates sailing up and down the river. It's just cold. That's all.
Today, there's a birthday party designed to celebrate four separate birthdays but it's being held at an elevation of about 1400'. That means far more snow will be there. If I go, I'll probably end up stuck in a snowdrift...again.
