Memphis is on the ice line, so if there's winter weather, it's usually sleet, freezing rain, or the occasional truly debilitating ice storm. Today we got 4-5" of lovely, actual snow. I'm totally ready for spring, but this is the best option if there has to be frozen stuff on the ground. It's in the 20's, but I took my tiny watercolor set and waterproof inflatable cushion and did two very quick sketches on my dog walk today. It was too rare an opportunity to completely pass up.
In other news, I'm working on a new print today while listening to the very first game of spring training, and I could not be more delighted that the boys of summer are getting started back. Hopefully the weather will soon follow.
