My least favorite time of year is the end of winter.
Oh, I like spring just fine. The part I dislike is the melting snow.
Snow can make any city look pretty since it provides a nice white cover over whatever the city actually looks like. But melting snow leaves behind dirty muckity muck that takes forever to actually go away, even at 58° (as it is today).
In Wisconsin, that melting period happens once — at the end of winter.
In D.C., however, the melting period takes place the day after each snowfall. This means it often happens several times per year.
With that in mind, I decided to head outside one snowy morning last week to take these pictures while the scene lasted.
