people are starting to bet on when the ice in the river will break up...probably not until late April or early May (there's a raffle every year--buy a ticket & write down your chosen prediction to see if you win). but already they've started plowing the streets...which over here is a sign of spring. because once all this snow starts to melt, we're going to have slush up to our eyebrows. to save us from that fate, the two trucks in town are dragging away the snow...i had no idea there WAS that much snow on the street, but it's a good couple of feet, packed down from driving over it for months. they better hurry...yesterday was exactly 0 degrees.
