  Ou sont les neiges d'antan?  Where are the snows of yesteryear asked the French poet Verlaine.  Well, I know where the snow of yesterday was: on my lawn.  At least until late this morning, when what hopefully will be the last snow of this winter disappeared in the spring sunshine.  What was left of last night's little storm was the cold- I went for my morning run dressed for spring conditions, and was unpleasantly surprised.  I was expecting the temperature to be in the low fifties, and instead was hit with 37 degrees and wind.  It took about a half hour before my hands came down from the sleeves of my sweatshirt.  I guess I only have myself to blame, since I put my snowblower into storage.  If I had left it in place, we'd probably have had an unrelenting heat wave.
