I think it possible we actually survived winter. It was above freezing two days in a row now. Makes the neighborhood (unplowed) roads hard to drive on, though. Onto my reading for this week.
The Hounds and the Fury — Rita Mae Brown
The Roots of the Olive Tree — Courtney Santo
Our Lady of Alice Bhatti — Mohammed Hanif
