Madison's Good Friday blizzard
Seems like a bit of a bait-and-switch operation after yesterday's gorgeous, sunny weather on the first day of spring (here's hoping my caterpillar buddy found a good place to take shelter). Today, Madison's record snowfall accumulation for the winter is rapidly closing in on the 100-inch mark (though I'm not sure it gets counted since, technically speaking, it's not winter anymore). The spring snow certainly was beautiful -- as long as you didn't have to go anyplace in your car. Driving was hazardous, with numerous accidents and slideoffs. These runners in Vilas park probably had the right idea.
