Can you believe it, yet another snow forecast for this evening? This semester continues to bring challenges with drivers forced to negotiate snow mountains, which once beautiful- are now reduced to dirty piles of funky ice. We’re hangin but dreaming of warmer climes. One good sign my orchid is beginning to flower.
