Monday, just after the rain ended a flash blizzard hit for about 15 minutes. A bit more snow is scheduled for tonight and Thursday morning around these parts. Will it ever end? At Congress Square Park against the brickwork, the snow looked exciting. Most days in high school, I walked back and forth to school by myself, and often March caught me heading out in weather like this. It was about a 25 minute walk, that allowed me to get my thoughts together for the day. I often timed myself to see how fast I could do it. The afternoon trip was another matter. Slightly uphill, in inclement weather my walk wasn't much fun. However, on many occasions in the rain and snow, Mom met me in the blue Falcon. Those days were special! Amazing, what a kid remembers.
