A very snowy weekend. The snow stayed on the ground long enough for the park and Boulevard to be filled with people making snowmen and forts by the dozen. Teenagers, normally too cool to be amazed by anything, had fallen to their knees and were scraping snow into their arms, and with a lurching run, would deposit it in piles some ways over to facilitate in whatever structure they were making. By around three in the afternoon the next day, it began to rain and that was that. It warmed up to +4 and then to +12 by Monday. Heary rain followed unfortunately and caused a lot of flooding in the valley.
