We've had a big buildup of snow so far. And heavy rain was forecast for today--accurately. Silly, naive Rhode Islanders. I've heard some people with short memories saying, "Maybe it will wash away some of this snow." Well, it washed something away. This was one of thise nights when it became impossible to cross the street without stepping in ankle deep water.
Which is a temporary annoyance. And I like snow. But a lot of people really don't. One guy I saw today was using his boot to write "I hate snow" in the snow. And this sort of anti-Winter mania causes some magical thinking.
