When Punxutawny Phil predicted an early
spring, and then the temp went up to
almost 60°F (15°C) on Thursday, I began to think
that just maybe we might make it through
this winter with only that one monster snowstorm.
So I was a bit surprised to wake up yesterday
morning to this. Oh well, it was only a
minor inconvenience—and so pretty, don't you think?

"Do not expect again a phoenix hour,
The triple-towered sky, the dove complaining,
Sudden the rain of gold and heart's first ease
Traced under trees by the eldritch light of sundown."
—Cecil Day-Lewis; poet laureate of the UK, 1968–1972

Anyone who's been visiting this blog for any
length of time knows that I love NYC's
hardworking little tugboats. I spotted this one
from my friends' 38th-floor apartment
as it helped a barge up the East River, past
a hospital on Roosevelt Island.

This five-story "rock-climber" is
doing his thing on Lafayette Street,
in Soho. I liked the way that lighted garland
was plugged in through the window at the
local fire station. The guys probably felt that
safety counts, neatness . . . not so much.
