Eight Inches

Today is St. Patrick's day. There are eight inches of snow on the ground. This is a weird convergence of things that do not ordinarily belong together.

I'm from Texas. The one time it snowed when I was a kid, businesses and schools shut down. There was maybe an eighth of an inch of snow on the ground when all was said and done but it was a novelty. After moving to Washington, snow was still something of a novelty. While everyone went nuts, shopped for toilet paper, and forgot how to drive, cursing the snow gods, I loved it.

Notice how I'm using the past tense here?

Spring could arrive any minute now and I'd be a happy man.
