Spring Sprang

My first winter in Madison

The coldest winter since they began keeping track

The temperature plummeting into the -60s with vicious windchill

The lowest snowfall since they began keeping track

Too cold to snow much at all

The most days total under 0 degrees since they started keeping track

The cover of Time shows a lone skier on an empty Seattle freeway

The most consecutive days under 0 degrees since they started keeping track

It’s only March

From my window I see a man running down Langdon Street in shorts and no T-shirt

The earliest spring since they started keeping track
