Winter, Etched in the Sidewalk

The snow storm, anticipated since last night, has finally arrived.
Last night's snowfall was benign and melted by late morning,
leaving instead a leaden cloud cover, full of the storm that has finally
edged into town. On my walk to the store, I found this gray gift,
left by the concrete finisher who installed a driveway a couple blocks away.
The sweeping arcs he made are intended, I suppose, to add
a bit of traction for tires. Here, the bits of soil and mulch left by
run-off from the lawn, have filled the grooves, making the concrete
resemble a dry-point etching, complete with "impressions"
made by the copper plate on a nice piece of Rives paper.
