What I was doing a year ago -- standing in an icy rain, looking down a frozen State Street
Today it's snowing gently. We're just supposed to get a few inches. One year ago today, a freezing rain was falling in Madison, coming down almost horizontally in a fierce, gusty wind. I took this photograph standing outside the Capitol, looking down State Street, protecting my camera with a little umbrella that threatened to disintegrate in the icy gale. (At least I had an umbrella. I can't imagine what the bicyclist felt like.) Now the photo is in the December issue of Madison Magazine, above editor Brennan Nardi's column.
