A few thawing days last week let us get rid of the four-inch-thick
sheet of ice on our drive, but now we've had another four inches
of snow on top of the already thick blanket, and it's been down

supposed to get back above freezing for the first time this week,
but more nasty weather is predicted for the end of the week.
I'm really, really tired of this winter.
