It seems winter isn’t over yet!

Until yesterday, I was enjoying clear roads and mostly clear parking lots. I was even able to venture outside in shoes rather than boots for the first time in many months. Since then, however, winter has definitely return. There has been some snow (though not a huge amount) and lots of freezing rain. Scraping the ice off my car took forever this morning and yet a while at lunchtime too. I was scheduled to have the winter tires taken off my car tomorrow (they legally need to be off before May) but I called this afternoon and rescheduled for next week. I am really hoping this is the last of winter but who knows! I also must say that it is strange for the sun not to set until like 8 o’clock and for it not to be relatively warm.
