“POOR MARCH. It is the HOMELIEST month of the year. Most of it is MUD, Every imaginable Form of MUD, and what isn’t MUD in March is ugly late-season SNOW falling onto the ground in filthy muddy heaps that look like PILES of DIRTY LAUNDRY.”

Vivian Swift, When Wanderers Cease to Roam: A Traveler’s Journal of Staying Put
