It snowed a bit where we are. And I’m not being sardonic – it really only snowed a bit. Like, an inch and a half. It wasn’t even that heavy. And yet, every sidewalk from my apartment to the metro was 100% pure, un-messed-about-with snow. No shovel had disturbed its delightful whiteness. Hundreds of feet, however, had ground the snow into a luge, so I, being aggressively averse to falling down, walked in the street. I missed my sidewalks. What a terrible morning.
