I remembered that last year I posted this great bunny picture, and sure enough I did on February 28, 2009. Once again, Bunny and I are desperate for spring. Desperate! This year it's not the 20 inches of snow we got in the last few days that drives my desperation, but the six inches of slush at every intersection. On the way home from the subway last night I was patiently waiting to cross Broadway and a taxi zoomed by drenching me head to toe in dirty, cold slush. It went through my hat, into my eyes and in my mouth. I dripped my way home -- only a block -- and have not gone out since.
This incident and the second blow to my ability to cope with winter -- my boots are now leaking -- has taken away what remnants of coping skills I had. I am done with winter! Please bring on spring. Bunny and I are desperate.
