Here in Minnesota, we mark the turning from winter to spring by monitoring the death of the snow banks that surround us. When they are at their highest, we wonder if they will ever melt. It seems unlikely. But the days get longer, and sun gets warmer, and even the biggest ones eventually succumb.
This year I decided to chronicle the death of “Mount Gracewood,” the giant snow bank that stood guard in the ‘hood for so long. Today, even after 3 inches of new snow on Thursday, she finally gave up the ghost.
An hour later she was gone…until November, that is!
