SunnySideOfDrivewayOn this equinox young spring and old winter continue to wrestle but with more time in the Fahrenheit forties than the teens spring is beginning to win. The snow grows less deep as it melts into the waiting ground, even exposing patches of long-buried grass on the sunny side of the driveway and a few emerging daffodil shoots.
