Slowly, Daylight Returns

Slowly, daylight is returning to our portion of the planet,
bringing warmer temperatures and brighter days.
Meanwhile, we bundle against the frigid air, fortunate 
and glad that the most recent forecast of snow 
with near blizzard conditions, faltered and fell apart.
As I walked across the IUPUI campus Monday,
on my way to swim practice, I looked
to my right to see a student, leaning against
the frosted glass of a classroom building.
Even though his image blurred him into anonymity,
his brightly colored accent markers could
be easily recognized. Of course.

I'm noticing more daylight now.

Your mention of the blizzard coming apart in your area reminds me of a blogger I know who lives in a town called Albion up in the north part of your state. He mentioned it the other day.
