The weather here’s getting a tiny bit better. The pavement glaciers are melting leaving behind three weeks of – continuing the glacial thing – ground moraine: dirt, dog poo, dog piss, cig butts, fireworks left over from New Year’s Eve, etc. Just a few days ago, the park was still frozen over. Slight dips in the landscape were filled with ice; enough for people to skate on. Enough for dogs to slide around on too. Roll the tape.
